After taking delivery of my new Dell Latitude 17, I am more than happy with this package. I opted for an upgrade to 500mb HDD, 4gb RAM and Blu-Ray disc player - all essential to future-proof the machine and get maximum useability under Vista (and shortly, Windows 7). There are only a couple of minor niggles. 1) The screen, when open, is hinged in such a way that the back of the laptop is completely blocked by the screen. This means that there are no ports on the back of the machine, everything is on the sides. This results in wires sticking out the side of the laptop for printer, camera, iPod etc, which look a bit messy and get in the way. 2) When the laptop is on, there is a very bright white light on the front. If you're watching a film on the laptop (which comes with 17.3 Widescreen Hi-Def screen and Blu-Ray Player - so it's quite possible), and you dim the lights to get the full effect, you are likely to find this annoying and purposeless light quite a distraction. Nothing that some black electrical tape won't fix. All in all, a great package, highly recommended.
