Just got my confirmation email today. Is it over priced? yes. Is it heavy? yes.
Could it have built in the TV tuner and made the remote part of the package? Yes. Better Video card and Screen resolution Yes yes yes yes.
The most important question:
Does it suit my purposes ? YES!
I purchased what I thought was a State of art Sager Lappy almost 2 years ago, and have been suffering from BSOD crashes for the last 10 months! Extended Warranty useless cause I can't prove it is a hardware problem and Warrantech holds you sys hostage if it is a software error until you pay them for determining that its a driver of some software you installed yada yada(crooked crooked crooked). Ran memory diagnostics, formatted the hard drive, etc... to no avail have not given up on it, but need a reliable system. So the peace of mind I get with Dell's "real" in home service and no fault warranty plans makes the expense worthwhile for me. I am blessed to be able to afford the system as well as an understanding Wife who indulges my hobbies.
So yeah I am gettin one of those bad Boys and feel like a kid at Christmas.
