I ordered a 725 Processor (1.6 GhZ) [Is 725 gonna be slow?]
No productivity suite (will by at school)
512 MB 2 dimms
3 yr plus solution (which is about $349).
4 cell battery and 8 cell battery as back-up. I guess it's pretty equal considering that I wanted the 3 yr warranty including the Complete Care. When I attempt to configure it with your specifications, the 3 yr warranty would add a lot of dough.
I'm jealous, but I'm okay with $1200.
I wish I knew about trying it from entry level. Since you can't use the coupon from the discount page ($250 off), I was only given the option of 40 or 60GB. I hope that isn't too terrible. I got the 3 yrs plus solution package because I am risk averse. My total came up to $1260 something (w/shipping and taxes).
you should be pretty close to what i posted for $1200 (depending on the price of the 3yr thing).... did you get an extra battery too- cuz u need one. you could always send it back or cancel the order (if they havent shipped it yet) and re order...
