    This is a joke right?

    Qute a big speed difference! The Amd 64 2600 (I didnt know they made a 2600?) will kick the living crap out of the tbird.

    Also, this is the wrong place for this methinks!

    Get CPU-Z on them and compare the two specs.

    Make sure theres nothing dodgy going on too, I've heared of people swapping laptops for pc's only to find theres something wrong with the pc, like the hdd's nearly dead, or it randomly crashes (usually PSU/RAM issue).

    Definetly test it out, What kind of video card and memory?

    run 3Dmark or something. You never know, maybe something might not be working with his PC.

    your laptop will probably provide you better use. Why do you think he would up and wanna trade. You can build something much better for the cost of that laptop. I used to have one like it and got rid of it for a desktop. I wish i woulda kept it now.

    Me personally id keep the laptopfor the value of the wireless. :D

    You can build similar system like that for:

    Mobo $100
    CPU $150
    Case $80
    Video Card $60
    Ram $45
    Burner $40
    HDD $80 (can get for 250/300Gigs for 130-150$ -80$ rebates if you care)

    So the PC is actually worth about $600 but without screen and used.
    Now try to find me a laptop (from reliable place, not ebay) with similar specs for $600
