tyvm for the help i'm about to purchase the dell and i hope that you will keep helping people like me

Sorry One, our original post was to long and this was the only way we could finish the discussion. I have read the comments and the help that you recieved from JackTheCrow, and you have decided to go with the E1505. Ok I have put together I list of specs below. Couple of things with these specs you have a great processor both cores running at 2GHz, for a net processing capacity of 4GHz. 1GB of RAM, this is an alright amount but it can be better. Because of your budget certain things had to be omited. Like the battery, generally I prefer to go with the higher capacity, but in your case you may be fine with the standard capacity. For a desktop replacement I would good with at least 2GB of RAM, something you would notice. I would also beef up the internal wifi card. Other then that it is a great nachine, with a great video card. Great Choice, Good Luck!
