    Make sure you buy the extended warranty, alot of people have been complaining that thier laptops last fine for about 1 year then after that they get all sorts of problems, trust me the extended warranty is worth it. I've had my 9400 for about 3 months and i can easily feel the keyboard is starting to wear out (some keys don't spring back as nicely as they use too), also mine was perfect for a month or two and then all of a sudden its developed a few problems (won't turn on sometimes, harddrive grinds etc.). trust me extended warranty is worth it, these 9400's seem to develop problems all of a sudden

    (by the way the 9400 is the same as the e1705 just badged different for different areas)

    Thanks for the advice about the warranty. Right now after doing some research, I am really torn between the e1405 and the e1705. After coupons I can get the 1405 for $650 (1.66 + truelife etc), or the 1705 for $1250(1.83+7900gs).

    The 1405 is half of the 1705, more portable, but lacks the 7900.

    The 1705 has a huge screen, and allows me to play games until the fall when I get a conroe box.

    Has anyone tried both of these?

    I have not, but those two notebooks are in two different worlds. One is not graphically strong, but very portable while the other is very strong all around but a beast to lug around. I personally just bought the e1705 for 1600 w/ 4 year complete care coverage.
