Just a warning.
(I dont know if you read my story over in XPS2 shipping date thread)
If you change ANYHING about your order (i changed os from xphome to xp mediacenter) they have to cancel the order and create it again.
This means that you will:
1. Lose shipping date since you loose you place in assembly queue of their "Henry Ford to the extreme" assembly line production which means nothing can change from "Order Processing" state to your door for a given order number.
2. Lose all cupons and have to use whatever cupons are out at that time. So if it does jump in price you will loose the good price if you change your Hard Disk.
I dont expect them to change much in price. But they are sure to give some discounts down the road but who knows when. I am sticking with my current config now. Unless the i9300 is like $800 cheeper for the same config. Which i doubt it will be that much.
