I've been in this dilemma for a good 3 weeks now and finally took the plunge on an M90 from the Outlet that I just couldn't pass up. If you see a good deal on a machine you want now, get it and enjoy it. As for my opinion on your questions:
1) Get the least amount of RAM you can unless you feel more comfortable having everything "all done with." RAM is cake to install and is much cheaper elsewhere. As for compatibility, you basically can't go wrong w/ big names like...
Just snagged my dream config from the Outlet! Screw Merom I took the plunge and will just upgrade later if need be, I couldn't pass this system up. Here's what I got:

DFS is perfectly fine assuming you have good credit ratings...
I have bought 2 refurbs from the outlet and both have been better than new systems I've bought, which I found funny. You can get some great deals on the outlet. I got my D610 for $945 shipped; of course I added my own HD, RAM, and wireless card that I already had, but the system is working flawlessly. Highly recommend outlet purchases
Tried 3dmark just for kicks, I got 867 3dmarks using Dell drivers and no overclocking. I'm afraid to OC at all with this laptop, and besides I really don't think a score of upper 900's will give me a noticeable increase in performance.

sjmueller just call Dell and ask for a replacement.
ZERO light leak over here. Granted my 1st LCD was hideous but Dell replaced it and this one (Samsung) is flawless. Yep, a tech comes to my home and replaces my LCD next day...that is horrible service!
You made a good choice on the 600m. Did you look at the Latitude D610? It is identical to the 600m except *a bit* better build quality and sonoma chipset, and the 64 meg ati x300. My brother has a D610 and I loved it. They are expensive though but check the dell outlet, you may find a steal.

Just to let you guys know
Dell home support = India
Dell EPP Support = India
Dell Small Business = USA
if you can guys set up a small business account you don't need any other information other than a made up name. then you can take advantage of US Support in some cases
I bought through EPP and have spoken w/ Americans every time I've called tech support and customer...

Not that I'm aware of no. I wouldn't worry about it, the LG screens I've had prior to this have all been superb.
