Dell Inspiron 9300--Good deal? Details included

Is this a good deal? I get a student discount of $300.

Pentium M processor 740 (1.73GHz)
17-in display, uxga, true life, widescreen
1GB dual channel DDR2 sdram at 533MHz
256mb nvida geforce go 6800
80gb hard drive
24x cdburner, dvd combo
internal wireless card
norton internet sec. antispyware 15-months
9-cell lithium ion battery
3yr ltd warranty
additional 9-cell lithium ion battery

normally for $2,937. with discounts i get it for
$2,320.56. is it worth paying $2,320 for that? if not, does anyone have anything worthwhile? i?d prefer a pentium M or amd-athalon processor, between 512 and 1GB of ram, a 60-80gb harddrive. bascially a good laptop that i can play the sims on and other games and is reliable.
