    Dell Inspiron 8600. Brand new in unopened box.

    Centrino M Processor 715 1.50A GHz / 400MHz FSB / 2MB Cache
    15.4" WXGA Wide-Aspect UltraSharpTM TFT Active Matrix Display
    128MB ATi's MOBILITY® RADEON™ 9600 ProTURBO Graphics
    512MB DDR SoDIMM 333MHz Memory
    40GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive
    Dell Internal Wireless 1350 (802.11 b/g)
    24x CDRW-DVD Combo Drive
    72 WHr Primary Battery
    10/100 Ethernet Network card
    IEEE 1394 Port / USB 2.0

    Also looking at a Dell 700m for $990 shipped brand new unopened box.
    1.6GHz, 12.1" screen, 512MB, 64mb vid card, 40GB DVD

    This will be used as my primary machine. It will mainly sit on my desk at home, as I plan to use my exisiting 21" monitor and keyboard/mouse at home. Will take it on the go sometimes, and to school. Was leaning towards the 8600 b/c of 128 mb vid card. Don't game too much on pc, but was thinking of Longhorn in the future... Brand new in unopened box. Just wanted some other opinions.

    Thanks!
