1.6 Ghz centrino beats the pants off a 2.4 P4M - 9200 ATI beats the pants off the 4200 and is apparently upgradeable .... and even with less gear its still more expensive - let go of the dell - I have one but its time to let go as well

hmm.... what now?
I just configured an Inspiron 8500
P4M 2.4 GHz
256 MB (min.)
64 MB NVIDIA 4200
40 GB HD 4200 rpm
- $350 MIR
The Inspiron offers easier future upgrade possibility than the x1000 with the modular optical bay (upgrade to DVDwriter) and bay for 2nd HD. And you could get a docking station.
If I only could find a 10% off coupon....
I just saw the x1000 at CompUSA. Nice screen. Not as good as the Dell, but good. Looks nice, but everything is plastic, not an aluminum lid.
