the really funny thing is, for a similarly configured 9300, I'd be paying more than what I got my 9200 for. I just got my 9200 a few weeks ago, after ordering it towards the end when a ton of discounts were offered. My specs are: centrino 2ghz, 1gb ram, 128mb video, 60gb 7200rpm HD, 17 inch XGA. For all of this, I paid $1850. Ok, if you go to dell.com and price this exact config for the 9300, the total price is $2,007 (with a $400 'instant' discount from $2407 originally).
Considering I got my 9200 for over $150 cheaper (brand new) and the only difference in config between mine and the 9300 I priced above is the front side bus speed (400mhz for mine, 533mhz for the 9300), and also considering that my 9200 gets an extra 1-2 hours of power off the battery than the 9300 and is quieter, I think I'll stick with my 9200, thanks! My only option if I did return my 9200 would be to pay $150 extra for a louder, less efficient machine that only has a slightly faster front side bus, or pay even more than that to get the real benefit of a 9300, which is the 256mb video card (which I can do without anyway).
