what do you look for? i'm in the market and recently i've found that resolution is more important than screen size, ram = processor speed = fsb, battery life rules and weight rule all. bundled software is a waste of time, anything bundled can be found Open Source, in some cases the open source is better. (eg: open office, nod32). So this doesnt bother me. question::::: is the Dell E1505 worth it or should i keep looking? It can be had at a resonable price, but some how i suspect that this means it's a dog. in fact, at some times with coupons it's insainly low with high specs. any takers? i'm not buying for atleast 2 months.
