  Hey FoRKers...

      My laptop (a Toshiba 325 CDS) is on it's last leg.  The monitor
      is starting to do funny frizzy things with me, and I fear it is
      not long for this world.  So, in preparation I've decided to go
      laptop hunting.  I already know the hinderances of laptops (less
      speed, less functionality, etcetc) but I grew very attached to
      the portability aspect.  Its always a sexysexy thing to take a
      lappy to a coffeeshop and pick up men (Right Rohit?)

      I started geeking around and came across the Titanium g4, and
      drooled... Very sexy laptop... I'm just curious if there are any
      PC counterparts, or would the G4 just be worthy enough to change
      OSes for :)  The unix basis makes me less likely to shun it for
      being a mac :)

      Either way, let me have some suggestions.  The toshiba served me
      well, but this time I want something that will be worth the
