Don't underestimate a docking station! It is so wonderful to convert from dual screen, full size keyboard, MX700 mouse, 250GB external hard drive, gig ethernet, hit undock, and move out to the porch with my wireless enjoying the changing colors of the sunset while continuing to work. Then back inside boom full desktop environment......
Unless you are setting this thing up in your dorm room and leaving it there, get the M70, or something else that docks, get an external 19" LCD (instead of a monster 17" laptop) that can do portrait for writing papers. Get a 3 year waranty, and dell complete care in case you drop the thing and you will be all set....
