Ok, I'm 57.5 days away from getting way far out of my comfort zone and actually starting class.  Classes registered for, Bursar finally billed me, laptop bought, panic setting in, etc.  Now for the totally irrelevant question - should I continue to post as a 1L or just delete my account and retire into the depths of history?

I just spent $119 with shipping for 1GB from for my 600m.  Installation consists of turning the laptop upside down, loosening one screw to remove to cover plate, taking each index finger and popping the side springs off the SODIMM chip, and then carefully pushing the new SODIMM into each slot and pushing down gently to lock it in.  I definately notice the difference between 256MB and 1GB.  Whatever you do, buy decent chips something like corsair, ocz, or mushkin.  I'm partial to mushkin because I've had good experience with their desktop memory and never had a problem with customer service.

For the geeks out there, even though the 600m is only advertised with PC2100 266MHz memory with a timing of 2.5-3-3, mine came with a PC2700 SODIMM clocking at 333MHz.  I installed two 512 PC3200 Mushkin SODIMMS timed at 3-3-3 and 400MHz and they run just fine at 333Mhz.  I ran through Memtest booted off my USB and there were no errors.

OK, I done geeking out, sorry.

Just noting the differences.  If you're worried about playing games on your laptop while in law school that's an entirely different issue.

Burgh, The 600m has the dedicated ATI Radeon 900 AGP card (64MB max)  In addition, it has the intergrated Centrino setup w/ the Pentium M.  The M is an option on the 6000, but you can bump the 6000 up to 128MB on the graphics card.

I've had my 600m for about a week now.  The keyboard is larger than I expected and very comfortable so far.  The 14" screen is more than enough IMO.  I went with MS wireless USB mouse cause I hate touchpads for long term use.  The only thing I wish is that it had legs in back so you could set it at an angle.  It's taken me several  hours so far to clean off all the junk Dell loads on the drive.  The  wireless works great with the home network, haven't tried it at the school yet.

Still considering MS OneNote or Storelaw's Outliner for note taking over just plain Word.  OneNote seems more geared towards tablet PC.  Would appreciate any comments on this.

Something else to consider is what you would work if you DIDN'T go to law school.  In any business, small or large, the guys at the top put in the hours.  It is just a fact of life, they try to get more done than anybody else.  So in my other jobs, when things need to get done, people are putting in 50-60 to more hours for a short period of time.  Some lawyers live like this, some accountants, managers, etc. live at work.  Lawyers tend to get more money as a result, not many managers at small companies can pull 120K+ early on (and probably never) - so my take is that if I'm going to put in the hours, I want the salary in return.
