A short update, and BIG thanks to everyone for your help in buying a new laptop. Best Buy would NOT sell me their HP dv9260nr, unless eCabinets is certified to run under Vista. I believe they are now gun-shy, due to a wave of returns - programs just not running properly, etc. So, went back to the De...

In general, what is the experience with the notebooks bought at the Dell Outlet? I know they offer the 3-year, on-site warranty. For those of you who have purchased, how good is their service? The reason I ask: I looked this morning in Best Buy at the equivalent, latest-model HP dv9260nr. It costs $...

Thanks for your quick feedback, Dan. You are correct - the M90 will be a much better performer all around. I have been looking at the ones with the Quadro FX 2500M graphics card, rather than the FX 1500 card. Should buy one later this week.

I keep looking at the Dell Outlet regularly, and find that the M65 Notebook typically is listed with the following graphics card: 512MB NVIDIA Quadro FX 350M Turbocache, OpenGL(256MB dedicated, up to 256MB shared) Will the shared portion of the memory affect performance on this laptop? Also, the scr...

Thanks, Kerry.

Would you believe, I started to go that route, stopped myself, and decided to post my question here? I must follow up on this and see where it takes me.

Thanks a bunch!!!

Tongue & groove to build cabinets in eCabinets?

1. Is it possible to specify tongue & groove as the construction method for cabinets? I use the Sommerfeld T&G router bit set for the cabs. 2. If so, how do I (or how would I) go about setting the preferences? Right now I don't see this as an option anywhere in 5.1, Build 2. Thanks!

Still looking - but Jack suggested (elsewhere) that I use wireframe until it is time to render the final image. I might try it and see how much improvement I get.

I see many of these machines have a video card with only 128MB video RAM. Is this OK to run eCabinets? I suspect it is, as many of you appear to have this. My current laptop just won't cut it with only 512MB RAM and integrated graphics :cry: . So, I will be looking at the Dell outlet several times d...
