    Finally decided to replace big clunky loud desktop with a laptop. I think
    they are close enough in performance to warrant changing. Not as cheap, but
    portable at least.

    Inspiron 8600 1.6 Mobile with 1300 pci b/g wireless. wuxga, 40G h/d
    (upgrading later in the year) 1 G ram, Dvd burner, ATI 9600 128M.

    Would loved to have get the new XPS but the don't sell that in Australia
    yet, and really wanted a mobile processor anyways.

    Hi Jiz, I am also in Oz. Did you soup up your Inspiron? I am looking at a
    I got in the mail from Dell yesterday. The inspiron 8600 comes with 512 MB
    and 64 Mb dddr nVidia Geforce FX Go 5200 AGP, intel PRO Wireless 2100
    Connection 802.11b. I think this must be the base model. $2999.

    Double memory & free printer at the present on 8600's

    you can get a variety of options.... I landed mine for about 3900 with a few
    extras - the screen was expensi though and worry that it might be overkill
    for what I use laptop for.

    we'll see - only option I wanted but didnt' get was 60 G 7200 rpm drive.
    Later on I'll get that when I'm overseas.

    If you internested in a similar laptop refurbished, look at you may save a bit. Buying one for my wife through
