Default Dell Laptops : Inspiron 6000 vs. XPS

I have been looking at these for the past few days. I am going to buy one of them for sure. They are both around the same price.

The ones I am looking at are...

-Dell Inspiron 6000: http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs
-Dell XPS M140: http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs

They both go for around 6-800$ on eBay, but I honestly don't know which one to get. I've used the 6000's before. And love them, 2 of my teachers have them and I set them up for them. They are pretty nice. The M160 looks the exact same. I like them both and don't know what the differences are. Or which one would be better.

I am going to be playing probably 1 and only 1 game on this laptop, which is Guild Wars, all other games will be on my Desktop. Any info on eathier or reviews would be awesome. Thanks so much.

the XPS is a better laptop.

more memory, better graphics, and dvd-rw drive.

I reeeally wouldn't get a Dell, really really wouldn't. My brother got a Dimension, and he had the motherboard replaced four times, and the hard drive twice. All under warranty, but it was a real hassle. It was also very sluggish when playing some games, it would lag with every game it played, even the original CS and the laptop had a GeForce 4 and 3.1GHz processor, more than enough.

IMO, stay away from Dells. Anything else buy Dells.
