Dell Inspiron 1520 review - coming soon

I ordered myself one of the new Dell Inspiron 1520s 2 weeks back and now i feel am obliged to make my visitors sit through its review :D

I got it on 20th, Monday and the burden of project work and unavailability of pirated games in Melbourne has made the task of writing a review a really tough one. It came with Vista Home Premium and this would be the first time am using Vista after trying out a Longhorn build for quite some time in the mid of 2004. So far no problems with Vista other than a couple of my old pirated pc games from 2005 crashing a lot, so i don't plan to rant about Vista/XP. Though i do intent to load XP asap on another drive to compare gaming performance, but that's all to do with XP, time to move on.

The review will be out soon, might be too since the laptop is blazing fast with 3GB RAM. My previous desktop just had 768MB RAM... and i really notice the difference while loading levels in games and moving from one section of a huge map to another.

Config -
2 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4MB cache
nVidia 8600M GT (256 MB DDR2)
3GB RAM
Wireless N
160GB 7200 rpm HDD
1440x900
Razer Diamondback gaming mouse

edit : oh... forgot to mention. couple of unsecured wireless routers near the apartment, so sipping away on free internet too :p
