    M1710 in the USA starts at $2,600 and tops pout at $5,000 fully loaded.. its funny for the price difference you can get a HP DV8000t with a lower graphics card for 1/2 the cost.... your paying a $2000 premium for a graphics card... and the HP setup is better suited for a gaming layout with the full num pad…

    Wow - that's a huge difference. Any good coupons to get the price down? Or will we be waiting a while for that? I do qualify for the EPP programs since I am faculty.

    Looks nice...tough to pay top dollar though for a Dell when you know there's going to be coupons out in the future (or that the E1705 can be similarly equipped...save for the graphics card for MUCH less after rebates...etc.)
