I guess I have joined the Dell crowd
, or will be as soon as it shows up.
Any thoughts on what I am getting,
Inspiron E1705 Dual Core:
Intel® Core™ Duo Processor T2500 (2GHz/667MHz FSB)
1GB DDR2 SDRAM
256MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1400 HyperMemory
100GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
17 inch UltraSharp™ Wide Screen UXGA Display with TrueLife
8x DVD+/-RW w/dble layer write capability
6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery (53 WHr)
Dell Wireless 1390 802.11g Mini Card (54Mbps)
Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Internal 56K capable v.92 Fax Modem
I know it's not an XPS, and it has the ATI instead of the Nvidea graphics card, but I just couldn't see parting with that much money,
seeing as I got this one new for $1327.00
I believe I will need to get a bigger battery (9 Cell)
any other suggestions, or reviews on this machine would be appreciated.
Still using my old M6805 e-Machines till it arrives, (seriously, it's not that bad).
