Is a LOT more expensive than when I bought it... I will check all the price's cause its really weird... I dont think that the merom incresased $370dlls
buying a laptop now with a core 2 duo is cheaper than what it was yesterday with the core duo. Seriously.
I ordered a m1210 with a core duo 2.0ghz last friday and today saw that the core 2 duos came out, went to the dell site and configured the EXACT SAME m1210 but with a 2.0ghz core TWO duo and bam, it was infact $150 cheaper, so i immediatly called dell and got my order exchanged, and to make up for the $150 i upgraded my hd (80gig 7200rpm to 100gig 7200rpm for $50, which is ALSO CHEAPER than before, before it woul dhave been about a $85 jump betwee the two) and the $99 av package. Dell significantly reduced their prices on chips even though the new chips came out, although anywhere above the 2.0ghz mark on the core 2 duo the price gets NUTS. It woulda been $300 mre for the 2.16 and $700 more for the 2.33, so the 2.0 is the obvious choice. Anyways they still are ripping you off on the ram, but hte hard drive prices are MUCH better now. I saw now is the time to get a laptop through dell, before they are out of their firrst shipment of core 2 duos.
Hope this helps
