Conversations Laptops have dropped quite a bit in price the the last years. So much that I think it's worth to pay some extra to get a reliable high quality machine rather than having to limit myself to the cheapest one I can find which was more or less the case 5 years ago.

I've been searching for a windows laptop which can make use of ECC memories, but this seems to be going nowhere. The original plan if msft to require ecc for vista seems far away. Are there no ecc memory based laptops?

At least among nearly 500 different memories I have come by in stores recently, I have never seen a single ECC memory. It appears ECC is almost solely used in mission-critical Xeon workstations.
