Stuff I ordered came in today. The keyboard looks a bit weird being the same color as the rest of the laptop and it feels funny, gonna have to get used to it.
Battery is rock solid too, using it right now as well. It's awesome!
1. Pretty sure Dell doesn't have an OEM caddy for our laptops.
2. The CDROM connection is SATA too and is just as fast as the on that the primary hard drive is plugged into.
3. SSD hard drives are nice, but still limited in size. IMHO,...
Personally I wouldn't pay over $1400 for that setup and even then that's pushing it, only because it does have a warranty.
I got a maxed out e1705 with a 7950GTX... for less than $1000. I only paid $700 for it, upgraded the hard drive...
I thought about getting a slot load drive, but I want the drive to sit flush in the laptop and I know on the i9300s that this wasn't the case. There would be a small gap on the top and bottom of the drive.
