kk how's this:

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

Customizations:

Intel® Celeron M® M540 >>>>>> Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5270 ($50 difference)

128MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8400M GS >>>>>> 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8600M GT ($100 difference)

120G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive >>>>>> 120GB 7200RPM SE080 Hard Drive (It's like, a $14 difference, so wtv)

56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery >>>>>> 85 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery ($40 difference)

$850 total $968.57 with taxes...

What do you guys think? I want 2GB of RAM, but the extra $150 for 1GB of extra RAM just doesn't seem worth it to me. I can always upgrade this myself later on for cheaper right? And what about the 8600M-GT? Can I replace that later on?
