Almost exactly the way I would have configured it with 3 minor
amendments - not a deal breakers but still:
1. Get a bit faster processor - 1.4GHz ought to be enough, but I can't
imagine even 2.0GHz being too expensive.
2. TrueLife screen is the glossy one - you will have problems with the
glare, fingerprints etc, I'd go with the other one.
3. Dell wireless 1395 802.11 g Wi-Fi Internal card - since you're not
likely to change your latop in the near future, I'd suggest you go
with a/b/g/n version the n version is the lastest and fastest spec -
very useful moving data wirelessly.
