You can rent EC2 (amazon aws) cloud services, tons of horsepower for the cost of a LT. It's 2-3$ per hour for a decent machine, you can even use it for free with certain limitations. http://aws.amazon.com/free/ There are even GPU's available http://stacksmashing.net/2010/11/15/cracking-in-the-cloud-amazons-new-ec2-gpu-instances/ I'd suggest getting the LT that makes you happiest overall, and consider CPU/GPU as a whole. Laptops don't have the power nor cooling currently to make them your GOTO hardware for password auditing, in a pinch they work just fine. Just my opinion. -rich
