Asus's C90 laptop, looks to be quite easy to upgrade. As all major components can be easily accessed. I don't know about you guys, but I really like Asus's laptops. I would buy this if I was in the market for a laptop.

That would be awesome, honestly, I wonder if you could pack a high end graphics card in there. Most of the time, 15.4" notebooks are reserved for the low to medium-end mobile graphics chipsets, but ever since they managed to just pop two graphics cards into a 17" notebook I've always wondered if there's something non-technical behind that...

An upgradeable notebook would be sweet. Not only would it extend the lifetime of a notebook, it would mean that I could get my perfect notebook... my wholly integrated, wonderful notebook that I've always wanted... :)

EDIT: DAMMIT. IT DOESN'T HAVE A DAMN NUMPAD. :D

Hey,
Don't you know that you can use function and the numlock keys to get your key pad?

I don't know about your Dell E1705, but this Asus G1 has a Numpad that can be enabled with function like Willie is saying, look at the keys with the blue numbers:

edit: Yeah, your Dell has the same thing:
