You can't really consider a Dell a single piece of equipment. Each made-to-order notebook is like a rack of climbing protection you've customized for a specific big-wall route. The basic vanilla version—40GB hard drive, 1.6GHz processor, and 256MB of RAM—will get you safely up your backyard crag. When you're ready to get serious and really pack in the power—think 80 gigs, a 2GHz processor, and two Photoshop-shrugging gigs of RAM—this one can support the computing equivalent of a single-push, frontal assault on Pakistan's Great Trango Tower.

Specs:Hard drive: 40 gigabytes >> Processor: 1.8 gigahertz >> RAM: 512 megabytes Weight: 4 pounds 2 ounces >> Screen: 12 inches >> Bonus: Integrated Wi-Fi, DVD writer, tons of upgrades
