    Maybe I should have gotten the webcam just for fun, but I didn't think I'd get much actual use out of it.

    I'd have liked a separate battery charger, but didn't notice one listed.

    I'd have liked a longer warranty, but couldn't afford it along with everything else.

    EXPRESSCARD SOUND BLASTER X-FI XTREME AUDIO NOTEBOOK
    I hope this has good sound. Between this and the bluetooth headset I'm hoping to avoid the annoying high pitched sound some people have mentioned.

    I always order mine with the same warranty and then extend it when the year is almost up. Cost me $97 to add another year on my 1705.

    I got it on a deal back in June for the 640m. It seemed like dell was getting rid of their stock since it was going to be discontinued. I then got an email stating I had to contact Dell if I wanted the order to continue because there were going to be delays. I gave Dell the ok to go on with the order. The next day it was cancelled and I called and requested to speak to a customer care manager. She said to place any order and she would credit me $250 towards it. I didnt negotiate at all. I just explained my dissatisfaction with the whole situation and she apologized and offered the credit. Credit ended up being $270 when they included the tax.

    That's definitely something I'll consider doing.

    Son of a...

    Ordered on the 23rd, scheduled to ship the 6th. Now it's the 7th, and it was resheduled to the 14th.

    You know, I could almost live with that if I had a reason to believe it wasn't just going to get pushed back another week.

    Hey just ordered my dell XPS M1710 today. Specs are:

    Core 2 Duor Processor T7400 (2.16 GHZ, 4MB L2 cache, 667 FSM)
    17" Ultrasharp WideScree WUXGA (1920 x 1200) Display with Truelife
    2048 667MHz DDr2 SDRAM
    160GB (5,400 rpm) Sata Hard Drive
    8x DVD+/-RW Drive including software - Vista
    Primary 9-Cell 80W/Hr Li-Ion
    Targus Campus Notebook Backpack XL
    512MB DDR3 nVidia GeForce Go 7950 GTX graphics card
    Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-Card

    I'm so happy, been researching laptops for the last few weeks and finally arrived at the M1710.

    Anyone any experience with the Wireless N cards? I got it because it was only an extra 12 Euro and wanted to be ready for any hotspot I could manage to connect to.

    My wireless N card works great, although I'm using a G router...
    Its completely backwards compatible, and I don't think I've used a better card yet.

    Excellent, that's the kind of answer I was hoping for. Thanks. Have you used any of the N routers with it? I'm interested to find out the speed increase over G routing.
