I don't understand this spec. fully; Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz, 17" WXGA+, 4GB DDR2, 250GB, 8X DVD+/-RW, Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 802.11g WLAN!
I think it is telling me the processor speed is 2.1gig. Is it?What is WXGA+? I figure the 64bit is an upgrade from my 32bit I get the rest except the WLAN thing. I'm guessing that is the WLAN speed. W being wireless LAN.

2.1 is the processor speed.

And now I find even better deals in a lenovo. I think I hate shopping;
This one is $489 G530
Specs: Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.16GHz, 15.4" WXGA, 3GB RAM, 250GB HDD, DVD Rrecordable Drive, Belkin Messenger Bag!

This one is $669 lenovo ideapad Y530
Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 15.4" WXGA, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, DVD Recordable drive, Vista Home Premium 64-Bit, 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Lenovo B10 Entry 15" BackPack!

Ideapad Y530 $619, I think the diff is the lenovo B10 Entry whatever that is.

I'll throw my $0.02 in. I'd pay extra to have a Dell rather than a Lenovo.
