Yesterday night, I finally made the decision to buy a Dell laptop - Inspiron 8600.
- Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7 GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 400 MHz FSB) - 15.4" WSXGA LCD Screen - 1024GB 333MHz DDR RAM - 128MB ATI Radeon Mobility 9600 PRO TURBO - 80GB (4200rpm) IDE Hard Drive - 8X DVD+RW Drive - Modular 3.5" 1.44MB floppy drive - Dell Wireless 1450 Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g Mini-PCI card - Dell TrueMobile 300 Bluetooth Module - 9 Cell 72WHr LI-ION Primary Battery - 6 Cell 53WHr LI-ION Second Battery
The only thing that annoyed me was the hard drive - yesterday, on the website, they only gave one choice for the hard drive (80GB) and more importantly, they didn't state what the rpm was (4200). I was hoping for 5400 or 7200 rpm, but I'm sure 4200 is not that bad.
Hopefully, all goes well from here, and I pray that my new journey with Dell will be a pleasant one.
Thanks for the help everyone gave me on this forum when I was trying to decide what to buy.
