    Just got my new dell Inspiron 8600 loaded with the following specs:

    15.4 inch WUXGA+ screen (1920x1200)
    Pentium-M 1.8Ghz (dothon core)
    ATI mobile radeon 9600 pro turbo with 128mb video ram
    100 GB Hard drive
    1 GB pc2700 DDR ram
    8x DVD-RW/CD-RW drive
    Intel Centrino Wifi minipci card


    Been running this badboy all day long, it's the fastest PC I own at the moment. I'm replacing my P4 desktop with this. I can play BF1942 at max graphics and max resolution no problem. The built in speakers are quite nice and the screen is very clear. I won't be taking this on long trips, that duty will still be left to my Averatec 3150 but the desktop is going to be scrapped for parts. :)

    I guess the new Dothon core chips are supposed to be fast, a 1.8Ghz dothon is supposed to be around the same speed as a P4 2.8Ghz. The best part is the crazy battery life, 5 hours is a long time! Gentoo should be all compiled in a couple hours, then we'll see how fast it truely is! :evil:

    nice notebook man I was wondering how the dothon core chips actually helped up for speed. Seems they work pretty well.

    Also 100gb in a notebook is sick

    With the $850 discount they were offering at the time of my order it came to like $2747 + tax.
