dell sucks in both tech support and their computers themselves. They are cheap when giving you your money's worth. They give you the minimum for everything. Trust me, I work for my school and the only have dell and we are always having problems with these desktops and laptops.

dell makes much better laptops than they do desktops. i have a dell desktop right now (which is a pos), and my dad has a dell laptop which is pretty sweet. 5+ yrs old and still running well on the same 600mhz p2. their service can be a nightmare, or a pleasure depending on who you speak with.

with your choices i'd get the 600m since it has a pm. i would recomend waiting a couple of days until the i6000 comes out with the new sonoma chipset.
