Graphics, price and screen size are my concerns.
Must be new, it is for a client who wants to do in home demos on a laptop, the program they need to run has the minimum requirements of:

P4 2.0ghz
1gb ram
1024x768
Radeon X1600 or Geforce 7600
1gb disk space
vista or xp


I need a graphics card comparable to a nvidia 7600 or an ati x1600
I need a screen size of at least 16''

Budget total (tax shipping everything) under $800.

Definitely would like a dedicated card. Any idea how that compares to a 7600 or x1600?

just grab a new battery and this vintage laptop spec setup will cost you $250.00.

check out the other brand manufacturers.
i'm sure you can configure something like your clients recommendations on a brand new laptop or get it from the local electronics store for around $350.00

Do not purchase a 7600 mobile chip. That is was part of the batch that had overheating issues and solder point connections breaking after a year of use. Check out the Everex x5000xt thread for more info.
