If you're like us, you're constantly on the hunt for a laptop which will bring balance to the Force, unite all nations, and really rock a decent configuration for not a lot of dough. Enter the PC-Koubou
Lesance NB, the Santa Rosa
based, GeForce 8400 sporting answer to your prayers. The 13.3-inch laptop features a Core 2 Duo T7300 (2GHz) processor, 1GB of memory, and a 100GB hard drive, plus connectivity options like USB, Firewire, eSATA, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/n, and SD, MMC and Memory Stick Pro support. The whole harmonious, peace-loving package will run you around $1215, but you'll have to go to Japan to get it -- which is probably a step in the wrong direction if you're buying a budget laptop.
