From what I hear, the build quality is fairly decent, and I don't think...
I have seen the light.
RPM > all
7200 > 5400 > 4200
Pretty much regardless of hard disk size, so if you want speed stick to the 60GB 7200RPM Travelstars.
Dual Layer is definitely cool. If it really comes on the XPS...
So I guess the only things I can buy separately for a barebones is: CPU, RAM, hard drive, and wireless adapter.
By the way, if you know some good sites to buy Dothan CPUs, post em up! I'm still interested in those.
