Yes, Dell makes really good quality laptops. Don't be afraid to go dell when it comes to laptops; they make some of the best for the money.

i know its **** good, im so glad i found it, it will kick the *** out of my aging desktop lol. i have yet to see a better deal, its just **** impossible, im going to splurge and spend a little more. I'm going to get the 2.2Ghz processor instead(still 4mb cache and it prolly wont make a difference, but who cares!), a better screen(but im afraid the 1680 screen might be dimmer, it says 200nits and the 1440 screen says 250 nits!, so if the screen is brighter id rather have the lower res one and get some more fps in games, but i really want that screen space for some serious coding0multi-taskin lol), a logitech mouse, and the 9-cell, and its $1,432 now. Its **** good anyway.

Man, since when is a 1440 res a low res when it comes to a laptop or am I just in a fantasy land? You'll be fine with that, and you probably won't notice much of a difference at all if you upgrade to a 2.2Ghz. If you are weary on that choice, go with the 2.0.

ye but the 1680 might be nice, super screen space. My eyes can handle it, i just think it might ruin my fps on games because of native resolutions.

Just to let everyone know. Dell uses DDR2 RAM on their 8600 GTs and not DDR3 like Asus and others. Just a warning. My resource for that info was notebookreview.com discussion.
