what's the min requirments for smooth DVD viewing on a laptop?
i'm working on a limited budget, so was considering getting the dell inspiron 1200. but i heard that a celeron proc. with 256 MB RAM will be choppy and slow job.(that's what the 1200 has)

how about celeron with 512 MB RAM would that do it?

and i heard that win media player is slower that quickyime

A Celeron and 512MB of RAM should be enough if it has a decent video card. Also, I'm pretty sure neither WMP and QT don't play DVD's. If you really want a portable DVD player, why don't you just buy one instead of a laptop (especially if you are on a limited budget). You can get decent ones for under 200: http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/SubCa ... tegory=491

Any modern laptop can do it, but your CPU choices are limited to either Pentium M or maybe Celeron M if you're hoping to get through Lord of the Rings on one battery charge.

I agree with Soma about portable DVD players... if all you want is movies, they're a better deal.
