Revised Opinion: I just checked Dell and you can now get a 1330 for WAY less than I paid for it. If you can get one for between $750-$1000 it is worth that. Like I said, I've owned a lot of Dell computers and this is the first one I've ever had a problem with, so it is likely a somewhat isolated event.
Dell = waste of money. I've had two and they both crapped out in less than three years. Once you go Mac, you never go back!
