I live in the U.S., and I bought (posted here since I don't have a sig yet
1.7GHz Pentium M
256MB of RAM
40GB hard drive
17" WUXGA screen
GeForce Go 6800
Nylon carrying case
$1430 for the computer, $1530 with tax and shipping, after the 40% off coupon.
After getting the laptop, I upgraded it with:
2 sticks of 512MB OCZ DDR2 RAM
Atheros WLAN card (to replace the Intel 2200BG, which dropped my connection way too much)
100GB Toshiba 5400RPM hard drive with 16MB cache
Total for the upgrades was about $250.
I'm extremely pleased with it - the screen is gorgeous, and it performs very well with every task I have thrown at it so far.
Next time, I think I will skip the Dell notebook bag and buy a Targus at a local retailer. Dell's bag is okay, but it doesn't have quite as much storage for file folders as I would like. Also, I prefer the Gel padding in many Targus bags over the styrofoam padding in the Dell bag.
