    Can you swap out the huge, hot & slow 500GB drive for a small efficient and fast SSD?

    I'd much prefer a lightening fast 64GB SSD than a slow 500GB drive. Especially on a work laptop.

    6-cell battery? You're already carrying a brick, might as well go for the 9-cell battery.

    Also, 1366x768 is pretty much entry level HD. They have a 15.6" HD+(1600x900) Wide View Anti-Glare LED-backlit for an extra $79.

    When you go into the dell site, go under large enterprise to get all the customization options.

    It says $180 extra on their site to go from 2GB to 6GB... you can upgrade the memory for a lot less elsewhere.

    I use an HP netbook with a 250 gb harddrive. I carry around all my PDF's on it, and connect to all of my equipment with a USB adapter and the battery last all day. I paid $225 for the netbook brand new. Works like a champ. Its cheaper than my company computer, and I don't have to worry about brreaking it. less than 2 lbs.

    It is gonna be heavy, but it is mil spec rated and it will be traveling from one mechanical room to the next, so figured might as well get something that I can beat around a bit.

    I did the RAM upgrade, but did not pay what is listed.

    Should be getting the Anti glare as well...

    The battery I stuck with the 6 as it is generally plugged in, but ordered a second...

    The 500 gig seems to have better reviews over the 300, so I stuck with the 500... I need the storage space anyways with Pics and videos and??
