Cool Finally ordered Dell Inspiron 6400

Hi guys n gals i am so happy that i have been visiting these awesome forums in most recent days. All the genuine help and comments i have received here have helped me decide what was best suited for me. I finally decided to purchase a Dell Inspiron 6400 with the following specs. Please tell me what you think of my buys, was it a good deal or a bad deal

Intel CORE DUO T2300(1.66GHZ 2mb cache/667 MHz FSB)
Windows Xp Home
15.4 Inch Wide Screen XGA Display with TrueLife
1GB DDR2 SDRAm at 533MHz, 2 Dimm
80 GB 7200rpm Hard Drive
8x Cd/DVD Burner with double-layer DVD+R write capability
256 ATU Mobility Radeon X1400 HyperMemory
80 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Primar Battery
Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
Intel Pro/Wireless 3978 802.11a/g Mini card (54 Mbps)
Dell Wireless 350 Bluetooth Internal (2.0 Enhanced Data Rate)
Nylon Backpack Carrying Case
90 Watt space AC adapter
1 Year return tp depot service with 1 year yech support
Integrated Sound Blaster Audigy Advanced HD Audio

Configured Cost = $1529 + Tax = $1758.35
Final Cost = $1,365 inc tax
Savings = $393.35
The time i spent to get this deal = Priceless

So i ordered this on Monday May 29,2006 and the estimate delivery date is set to June 9,2006. Now i would appreciate any comments and suggestions regarding this. Also i would like to know is that is the estimate date by any chance accurate ? Or do they always delay it ? Thx in advance

Interesting: many people get new PC's ignoring Conroe's release in a month or so, despite its great performance.

It's not caring, but simple logic (unless it is necessary to get the PC soon for work or something like that). Another reason could be lack of information. Then there are some people who just stick to the same company regardless of the quality.

Stop bickering. Conroe comes out in July, people want stuff NOW.

Also, Conroe's are desktop processors. He bought a laptop. The mobile versions off Conroe, named Merom, will be out in August.
