    i need a new PC really bad and was looking at this laptop. does anyone have one? what do like / dislike about it? also, i have windows XP PRO now and hate the idea of having to get Vista but that is all they offer now - who has Vista? do you have the ultimate?

    i really want a Mac but the one i want is so much more than this Dell and we get a nice corporate discount on Dell.

    sorry for the ramble LOL

    That's what I'm looking at buying too! I can't wait to see what the girls say. Our IT person at work said they're not any different from the others...but I don't know if he's right. I think it depends on what you want its primary use to be.

      I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 and I think it's great! I also didn't want to do with the Vista system but had no choice. It's different from XP but the same basic concepts you just have to get used to looking at things a little differently. Once you get used to it it's no big deal. The only problem I have is that once in a while the mouse sort of gets stuck but it's only for like a few seconds. They sent me a new power cord that was supposed to fix it but I still have trouble once in a while.

        I didn't have the same Dell Studio 17 but I did have Vista and it wasn't too bad. I converted to Mac and you absolutely must get one. It beats PC by far. I was real hesitant about spending the money on mac but it's so worth it. You can get a refurbished one for less than $1000 that also comes with a warranty. Mac offers discounts to students or anyone with a .edu email address can get the discount. You don't even need to be a current student just have an email address that ends in .edu.

        Sorry, I know it wasn't much help but I just had to take the time to advocate for Macs because they are so worth it. Good Luck.
