Default Is this a nice laptop?

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System
Since it comes with vista, can I just use my Dell xp disk that came with my desktop and use the key that's on the case?
And does this look ugly to you guys?
Should I find a different laptop? If so, any suggestions?

Inspirons have very low build quality. Consider a Latitude, or a different manufacturer.

I was looking at some other nice looking laptops from other manufacturers and they seemed to be too heavy. I was looking at the inspiron 1520 as my other choice.
