YES, the 9300 is a great overall laptop for college, its only half an inch deeper and an inch wider than a 6000 and a pound heavier so its not that much bigger and you get a 17 inch screen, dvi port, two more usb ports and the 6800 go card which is great for gaming or general use, dvds and soo forth.
Since most college students use their lappies for dvd playing, gaming, school work and soo forth, the 9300 is a great solution.
As for taking it to class? Its been my experience that those who do end up surfing on the web instead of paying attention. I carry my 9300 all of the time to and from work and the coffee shop, its very portable and very powerful making it a great choice for the college student who needs their laptop to be a strong performer in a variety of situations, add to this that both models are similarly priced, it should be a no brainer!! 30 percent coupons for inspirons are out right now and expire on 11/17.
