I am a tech and I have been working with Dell latitudes for years. I would highly recommend this laptop. If I had the $$ right now I would buy one myself. That is a great price. You can always upgrade the HDD and Ram later. If you looking for a quality laptop that will stand the test of time you can't go wrong with a Dell Latitude.
Work like you don't need the money,
Dance like no one is watching,
Love like you've never been hurt.

It motivated me go to the Crucial website and order:
CT1725319 128GB Crucial m4 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s (SATA III) Upgrade for a Dell Latitude D531 System
I had been putting it off for months.
I've replaced some HDs with SSDs in D620s and D630s and my users say it's like a whole new machine. I can probably keep them in service for another 2 years for $150 (or less) each.
Listen to me now, or hear me say "I told you so" later.

Option of dock
Built like a Tank
Only checkbox it missed:
16:9 Screen (I prefer 4:3 myself)
If it wasn't number two on my priority list, right behind replacing a 32" CRT TV, I would be all over this. I do take comfort in one fact though,
Newegg has the exact same build for $20 more. This has me thinking these will hang around for a bit.
And I also can personally attest on the build quality of Lattitudes, still rocking a C600. Comes in at 7 lbs strong, and is still suitable for light web cruising. Not counting it runs XP great, and older games like Roller Coaster Tycoon and MOO2.
I will probably be on the lookout for one of these when it comes up again.
i3 quad thread.
Good find woot, must resist. I got a 64gb ssd for a d830 with only 2gb of ram and 2.0 dual core, but that thing screams.
Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!
