It will soon have 384 megs of ram though...

Ive only had it a few hours but so far its been fantastic... Jedi Outcast looks SWEET in high rez on it... My only complaint so far is i wish the volume control buttons had an OSD, but thats ok.. It might have em, i just havent found it yet... The weight isnt really too bad for me, i was expecting something much heavier...

<---- IS VERY HAPPY WITH HIS FIRST LAPPY!! :D

Very nice. I wish I could afford to get a laptop in addition to my desktop, but I don't see that happening anytime soon :(

I was lucky i guess, my school picked up the tab for me.... (in a matter of speaking) My dad had to front the money though...

Exactly! To people who say its too heavy: If you're a student, just liken it to carrying yet another book. Its not like the thing weighs 30 pounds!

Nope, the fixed drive doesn't move. But the second optical bay does, and that's pretty cool. Nothing like slamming two batteries in it and watching some DVDs in the car.
