    Dell Inspiron 9300

    OK, I need advise on the following specs for C$2338.
    Or similar configuration Minus (TrueLife™ display upgrade -Printer -MS Office Basic) and Plus 80GB drive for USD$1,745

    The primary purpose of this laptop is to access VPN for work. Burning DVD, multimedia communication with, cell phone, PDA, digital camera, MiniDV camcorder and TV and surfing Internet.
    I want a Centrino M processor with a medium CPU but faster Bus speed. The battery will last longer and the system will run with full resources in use, unlike P4 mobile processor. Correct me on this one.

    Memory is important that is why I selected 1GB. DVD burner and S-video are also my preference so is the 802.11b/g NIC.

    Hard drive is not something I am worried about as I have a slower system (current one) which I want to use as storage and ftp server for file sharing. That system has 160GB drive and will be running Linux behind a firewall router.

    Also please comment on the warrenty. What is better?

    excellent specs...I would just recommend getting an extended warranty in case of has always helped me...better to keep an extended warranty of 3 yrs
    Oh, everything's too damned expensive these days. This Bible cost 15 bucks! And talk about a preachy book! Everybody's a sinner! Except this guy.

      Up it to XP Pro.
      These laptops are almost good enough to do the stuff for a PC. I'm sure you'll have fun.
