I'm new to the world of Dell and i had a few questions. I currently own a Fujitsu C-series and am happy with it, but i want to upgrade. I have been looking at the 8600 (and the HP zt3000) and want to know what the overall consensus really is. I would get the 128 ati, 1 GB RAM, 1.7, 60 GB 7200, WSXGA +. I have heard many complaints about the casing and about how cheap it looks/feels. Is this true? Will i really be afraid of breaking it? Also, is the keyboard really that bad? Is there a way of getting a different one? Does anyone actually use the trackstick and is it useable? If any of you have tested the HP zt3000, how do they compare. As a last question, what do you guys think about the centrino v p4 w/ HT. Which one is ultimately better at this point? Thanks a lot.
