I have a Toshiba P305D that I paid $500 for at Wally World. It runs very well on Win 7 and even better on VL.
Here's the spec's on mine.
Processor AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60, 2000 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
ATI Radeon X1250
4 Gig Ram
250 GB HD
Windows 7 Home Premium
The only two things that are an issue with me on this one is the smallish hard drive and the video adapter. I game on this notebook as well, and there are times I'd really like to play with the video settings at their max. Not going to happen with an ATI x1250!
But.. It's been a solid performer. I've had it almost a year now, and I've pretty much used it as a desktop replacement. It originally came with Vista, which I promply ripped out and installed Win 7 RC. I've since updated that to the full blown version of Win 7 and I haven't looked back since.
VL 6 Standard screams on this thing, and SOHO 6 Beta 4.2 runs like a champ as well. (Running both on an external 320GB drive.)
