Yes your warranty is nice, but it's only +1 year over mine. You have a 200MHz faster processor and 40GB more HDD space... OMG WOW /bow!
Plus, I have the 17" widescreen allowing 1920x1200 native.

Here are some graphs to prove 7900GS > 8600GT

and one last link:
VGA Charts 2007 | Tom's Hardware

Yes you have DX10 but... I mean... cmon, DX10 on an 8600GT which already preforms worse than the 7900GS at DX9 stuff?

So your laptop brand new, if you add the $300 you got off temporarily, is the equivalent of what I'm asking for mine (thinking about shaving off $100-200) and you lose 40GB HDD space, and 200MHz off the processor for a larger 17" widescreen with a higher resolution and a much better preforming video card. Trust me, those 200MHz aren't going to make up for what the 8600GT lacks from the 7900GS.

I rest my case.
$1,300 is sounding more like it.

Oh yeah, Bluetooth too
I am pretty sure that qualifies as cutting me down. Ouch.

Just a bitta fun... Anyway, i think your laptop is better than most around that pricemark that Dell sell anyway, so you should be able to sell if you market that video card as one of the key features...
