    Am I correct in thinking that I don't have to buy 4Gb of RAM for this laptop from Dell, I can just buy some RAM from Newegg that works, and everything will be fine? The upcharge for RAM direct from Dell is insane.

    2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz [add $100 or $3/month1]
    4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz [add $500 or $15/month1]

    Can the same be said for hard drives as well?


    Speed: 160GB SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) [add $175 or $5/month1]

    Yes, those prices are pretty bad. Go to crucial.com and put in the model name/number and it will show you exactly what kind of RAM to buy. You can then shop around for the best price.
