BUY: Thrifty Hi-Octane Laptops

Save money without compromise on the ABS Mayhem G4 notebook for $1,999.

The Mayhem is powerful enough to be a good gaming laptop, with 2.26GHz Pentium M 780 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, GeForce Go 6600 video carda, and a 5,400rpm 80GB hard drive.

If slaying mutants isn’t your thing, that hardware also comes in handy for multimedia apps. The Mayhem’s only drawback is that the one-year warranty is not extendable.

Read the review. See the specs. Buy one.

Computer Shopper’s article also has four other great laptops from “indie” manufacturer’s.

    …..Not so sure about the hard drive. 5400 rpm means lots of rattling and slow-downs.

    5,400 is better than the 4,200 that you still see here and there. (I’m looking at you, Dell)
