    I'll be getting it for $1679 with a free 160GB external hard drive. I'll probably also go for a longer-lasting battery ($120), bringing the price back up to MSRP.

    I'd get an Lenovo ThinkPad T60 over that.

    for the money, the T60 is a better buy, imo.

    Meh - I can get the TopSeller T61's pretty close to the T60 prices now.

    Jeezoman, guys. You folks should open up task manager once in a while.

    4gb? I can't believe you would get anywhere near tapping that out on a laptop.

    That and the fact 32 Bit doesn't support more than about 3.25gb. In my case, the ram was already in it since it was in the Dell Outlet center.

    Running Solidworks though, the system starts to approach those levels, and with the price of ram now a days, might as well do it.
