ok, so i just ordered a vostro 1500 off dell's website. strangely, it had a $384 rebate, whereas the almost exact laptop, the inspiron 1520, did not have as good a discount...

so anyhow, here's the configuration:

intel core 2 duo T7100 (1.8 ghz, 800mhz fsb, 2 mb cache)
2 gb ram 667 mhz
120 gb 5400 rpm hd
nvidia 8600M GT 256 mb graphics
6-cell battery
15.4" wxga (1280x800) with true life
default audio/wireless

total price was only about $900, whereas a similarly configured inspiron 1520 was about $1100...

any vostro 1500 users out there...i have a quick question. Is there a "graininess" problem with your screens? please share your experiences and/or comments.

and to everybody...how does this laptop look? i'll be mostly using it for photoshop 7.0, music/video, some moderate gaming (bf2, aoe3), and just plain office work.

i just don't get why the inspirons are like $200 more...when they look pretty much the same and are configured the same...wierd :?

...so that you buy a dell and think you saved X over Y :) How much were the competitors?

i was pretty much looking for a laptop under 1k that was ~15"...

so i had the dell vostro 1500, inspiron 1520, and hp dv6500t as my choices...

the dv6500t looking by far the best, but it only had 8400GS graphics and cost about $200-300 more for similarly configured specs.

well, i ordered already and let's just hope the vostro's screen looks good

Can anyone comment on the noise level of the 1500?

Are there any ULV processors that use the Core 2 Duo form factor so the fan can be removed?
