Default is this a good deal?

I know many people won't get a Dell, but I'll try anyway

Inspiron 600m

-Pentium® M Processor 725(1.60GHz/400MHz FSB) 14.1-in XGA w/32MB Video, Microsoft® Windows® XP Home

-512MB,DDR,266MHz,1DIMM

-30GB Hard Drive

-24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive

-1450 Internal Wireless (802.11a/b/g, 54Mbps)

- + all the other junk

-My final price would be around 840-900 bucks w/ s/h

I have a Dell laptop, and it is very good indeed. I would go ahead with the buy.

I'm not too sure. I'd say that you could get better than that for the same money.

Actually, Dell Laptops aren't that bad. They do have some good models. But, it's the Desktops and Workstations you want to watch for.

Dell do make some pretty good systems, like the Dimension 8400 and the Inspiron 8600. I'd say go for a Mobile Athlon 64.

Nobody else is going to tell you to get a Mobile Athlon 64 over a Pentium M unless you have no money at all and need the cheaper machine.
