Default Is this laptop Ok with PT + M-Box Mini?

Hello.

I need to know if this laptop will work OK with Protools 7.x on a M-Box Mini.
I don't need you to help me choose "the best laptop" because I know that Macs are the best now. I just need to know if this particular one will perform OK with PT.

Here are the specifications:

DELL INSPIRON 6400

Inspiron 6400:
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5600 (1.83GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB)

Memory:
1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz, 2 Dimm

Video Card:
128MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1300 HyperMemory™

LCD Panel:
15.4 inch Wide Screen XGA Display with TrueLife™

Hard Drive:
120GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive

Combo or DVD+RW Drive:
8X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer DVD+R write capability

O.S
Windows XP Pro service pack 2

So, how do you find it?, it's ok? what can you recommende me?

I'm in a budget.

Thank a lot.

Ed.

No. Core 2 Duo laptops are not currently supported.

This information, along with recommended laptops is all on the Mbox 2 Mini's info pages.

Answered already. Click on the link I gave you (here it is again, just in case). That is the MBox 2 Mini compatibility page. Click on the "Mbox 2/Mbox 2 Mini/Mbox - Laptop PC" link on that page. Then click on the "Pro Tools LE 7.3 - USB Windows Laptop Systems" link on the page that appears. Halfway down that page you will see the section titled: "Qualified Laptop Models Configured with Intel Core Duo Processors ONLY" and under it are listed the qualified laptops, some even with links!
