    Hello,

    two days ago someone broke into my house - and my laptop (and some other things) was stolen.
    I'd kill that guy on place, really. It was Asus N53 (i5, 6gb ram, GF GT 540M), piece of some nice hardware.

    As I'm working as software developer and I have to work on something, I'm forced to buy a new computer as soon as possible.
    I was thinking about DELL, heard that they're solid : ) I don't want macbook, because I'm programming for windows architecture.

    Could you suggest me something to 1000usd?

    I really like the HP Eliitebook 2540p - give it a google and see how it would suit you and im sure you can find a decent refurb under warranty

    I'll check them. thanks : )

    Question #2 - Do you know ways to track stolen notebook? Or it's impossible? I gave serial number to the police, but is there anything else I can do (except checking ebay : ] - i'm doing it)?

    how to track stolen notebooks:
    1. own a mac (there is an app which shoots fotos with the camera and sends them to youremail all 30 minutes)
    2. add a dynamic dns client on the laptop, which autorefreshes
    3. try third party programs, which allows that.
