Loaded Dell Inspiron 8500, purchased about 7 months ago from Dell, still has ~1.5 years left on the warranty. I bought this laptop because it simply had the best display available. It has a 15.4" display that will go up to 1900x1200, and it is stunning. I am a firm believer that laptops can be of any speed, as long as the display is premium you won't have the desire to replace it for a long time.
Some of the highlights include:
2.4 intel p4 processor
768 megs of RAM
60 gig HD
GE Force 4200 to go (will play any of the current games with ease)
builtin sound, network, modem, firewire, usb...
radtech keyboard/screen protector (to keep the display immaculate)
orinoco wireless card
Everything is in great shape, the top of the display still has the factory plastic cover on it. I used gentoo linux, but will install the dell supplied windows for the buyer. Reason for selling: Mac convert (I dig the bsd, what can I say).
