Well, I sucked up my misgivings about dell, and ordered an E1705<br>
It has:<br>
T7200 C2D Proc (2.00Ghz 4MB cache)<br>
17" wide screen<br>
7900GS<br>
Integrated bluetooth<br>
1GB DDR2 667 SdRAM (soon to be upgraded to 2 GB from newegg)<br>
80GB HDD(soon to be upgraded to a 7200rpm 100 GB from newegg)<br><br>
It will also be folding very soon.

Very nice, you best get that thing folding, but beware laptops = HOT so get a deskfan and prop it up about an inch in the back and just let the deskfan blow cool air under it.

I was so close to ordering an Alienware with same proc but with 2GB of 677mhz memory, and 2 7900gs's SLi but could see spending 1100.00 more. I called Dell 1 more time and beat them down on the price another 100 bucks. So I pulled the trigger and ordered it.

How'd you get them to lower the price?<br><br>
Also, please let me know what you think of it! My friend is looking at getting that same lappy.

I called the sales line and recalled it til I got someone from Austin instead of nashville. The Austin people work at the corporate HQ. I rattled off a bunch of scenarios of other offers and told him, i'm making my decision today. I also told him I would get the 3 yr warranty(upgrade) let him configure it, and then pulled the warranty. If your friend wants the # of the guy who helped me, I have his direct line now. He's a cool mofo. We got talking about Counter strike and stuff.

2MB of ram will be a bit of a bottleneck <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> Other than that, nice laptop <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Nice catch Fishie, I fixed it.<br><br>
Total with taxes and shipping was 1500.00<br><br><br>
On a side note, I went out and bought a second laptop for the daughter and wife. It's an HP with a Turion 64 X2 Proc and 1GB(thank you Fishie) or mem. The GPU is a lil sucky, it's a nvidia 6150 GO. But it's just for folding and surfing the net for the girls.
