    Well, that starts being a KO criterium. I'd like to see a laptop like

    - one or two serial interfaces
    - modem
    - IrDA
    - TFT display, with a nice graphics chipset (I'd like to have
    ATI, but with a good, free driver, and it's own RAM, no UMA
    - Large HDD
    - Good akku, best with possibility to plug an external extra
    akku onto it
    - PC like keyboard layout (with the 6 keys above the cursur keys
    kept togeather, not as a row on the keyboard's right side or
    so...). I don't need those Windows(R) extra keys, neither do I
    need extra "email", "web" ot the like keys...
    - CPU (i386, ppc, ...) doesn't really matter, but of course I'd
    like to see Linux support:-)
    - network interface (100MBit/sec is okay, GBE is nice, too:-)
    - Floppy
    - CDROM, maybe DVD or CD-RW or sth like that, but that's IMHO
    not that important.
    - parport
    - VGA out (I personally don't need TV in/out)
    - USB? Well, I don't need it:-) I don't like it...
    - Firewire. Yeah:-)
