Naaaaaa - this is what you get when you take a budget model laptop and hang all the toys on it. What you end up with is a loaded up budget model computer with too much money wrapped up in it.
This series laptop is nice when you keep the configuration in the $400 - $450 range as a nicely fitted economy model. I have one, Intel dual core and smaller hard drive (my choice - it was a custom build) but otherwise the same... paid $400, and upped the RAM to 2GB for another $20.
