Hey guys (and gals) I just ordered a new laptop through Dell... had an awesome deal through Slickdeals.net... Give me some opinions

Inspiron 9300 Intel® Pentium® M Processor 740 (1.73 GHz/2MB Cache/533MHz FSB)

Display 17 inch UltraSharp™ Wide Screen XGA+ Display

Memory 1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz 2 Dimm

Video Card 256MB NVIDA® GeForce™ Go 6800

Hard Drive 80GB Hard Drive

Operating System Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition

Network Card Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem

CD/DVD Drives 8x CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer write capability

Wireless Networking Card Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200 Internal Wireless (802.11 b/g, 54Mbps)

Primary Battery 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery (53 WHr)

Original Price was $2,474.00 but I got it for $1,484.00... will be gaming on this laptop (hopefully) I know the 6800 is a battery killer but I'll probably have it plugged in most of the time... thanks

You'll be able to game with that without any problems. I have a 17" widescreen Compaq notebook for work - you will really enjoy the big screen! Yes, you will need to plug it in since the battery will drain fast while gaming, but most notebooks run at a slower clock when running on batteries (it's set-up in Windows that way by default if it knows it's a notebook) so to get full performance, plugging it in will be a must. I would recommend investing $50-$100 in good speakers/headphones as the quality of most notebook speakers can be very disappointing.
