I got in early on the deal and got the 8600 in my sig....
basic configuration but I did opt for the WSXGA+, which I think I'll like a lot.
8600 with Pentium M 1.5
64mb nVidia (should have got the ATI)
Dell 1350 wireless
60 Gig drive
24x DVD/CDRW combo
Since I live in Texas, I had to pay tax
Total was around $880 or so, but I'll get the shipping rebate. Still a great deal for that laptop!
