I pick one up from BB on Friday evening. Got it for my wife and she loved it when she open it.
I originally place an order through dell on an M140. 2 days after I order, I check the price again (Friday) it was $50 less.
To make a long story short, I would end up paying more for the laptop even though it cost less. They told me I didn't get taxed before and now I have pay tax for it.
Sorry, didn't mean to get off the subject.
In a few more days, I write my full review on this laptop. But for now, think this is the best laptop for me (her).Pros
BIG and BEAUTIFUL 17" Hi-Def screen - Brightview
2x 80GB (5400 rpm) HDD
128MB dedicated video memory (none gamer)
ML-32 Turion 64 bit CPU for future OS upgrade
Intergraded 802.11x with 2x high power antennae
Full size KB with number pads (personal pref.)Cons
Opticle drive don't feel right when closed (click)
Power charger gets warm on normal use, but, gets really hot if/when use to charge the battery. (65 watts, 18.5volts with 3.5 amps).Other thoughts
; Wish it was a dual chennel memory
6 in 1 media reader (but no slot for CF/micro drive. what I need)
Glad I made this purchase over dell M140.
