New Computer?

So it looks like we'll be ordering a customized HP Pavilion dv1000 online next week. Configuration:
– Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with SP2
– Intel Celeron M 380 (1.6 GHz)
– 14.0" WXGA BrightView Widescreen (1280x768)
– Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 - Celeron
– 512MB DDR SDRAM (2x256MB)
– 60 GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive
– DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
– 54g 802.11b/g WLAN w/ 125HSM/SpeedBooster
– 12 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

I believe it meets all of my criteria listed below...it might be pushing the weight line a tad with the 12-cell battery, but it's still gotta be better than this 8.5lb clunker.

$992, with 2-day shipping, after mail-in rebate.

Everyone's happy (I think).

Yes, I'm happy with that. :-)

That gets the Ryan seal of approval. I especially applaud the 5400rpm hard drive over that 4200 thing.

I actually built an almost identical lappy when you sent me the best buy link the first time. (I did add the dvd burner though. =P)

I know, I took your advice when I put it together. I'm pretty meh on the DVD burner though.
