I recently purchased a new laptop to test before purchasing several (needed to run large multi-screen presentations). The computer has lots of power, but there are a few things that caught me off guard that are not a part of the “usual” specs.

I have a very small Sony laptop I use as my personal/travel computer. One disadvantage of it is the lack of screw downs to secure the VGA cable. In this case not much of a problem, as it is not a show computer.

But on this new computer, a full featured graphics powerhouse with 256MB graphics chip, 2 GB RAM, dou core processor, etc., they are also missing. A feature I did not even think to look for as I figured it as a standard issue item. Guess I was wrong.
