Basically because upon leaving Ecuador, I will be at my parents' place
in Oregon for a few weeks, then traveling to Texas, then traveling to
SC to get married :D , then moving into her tiny apartment in
Jacksonville, FL until we figure out where to move to next. :-)

You're right though, I really do want a desktop.  Maybe I can
compromise on the laptop and get a monster desktop system later in the
year when we're settled.

However, I currently have a 17" G4 Mac Powerbook, and I think it's
plenty portable.  (I plan to sell it before leaving Ecuador.)

Right.  I've been leaning towards the HP for the last day or so, but
they only offer 5400 drives.  Faster might be good for video capture.
