They had some compelling configurations in the outlet, so I ended up getting one there. Here are the specs:
- 2.0 GHz Pentium M (Dothan)
- 256MB of RAM
- 80GB HD (5400rpm)
- DVD/CD-RW Combo drive
- 8 cell battery
- Windows XP Pro
Then I went straight over to Crucial and ordered an extra 1GB of RAM for it. Total out of pocket (including tax and shipping) was around $1900 – not too bad. I’m sure it will do the trick for me.
I’m interested to see how the “crystal clear display” compares to the XBRITE screen that the Sony has. The Sony was probably a better option, but not for an extra $1500.
It should get here this week, I’ll post some thoughts when I get it.
