Dell’s sales people lie awake at night scheming up
ways to make it devilishly tough to choose between their laptops. Now I hear
via PC Mag Radio that those minions have dreamed up a special back-to-school
version of the 1420 with Core 2 Duo, 2 gigs of RAM, and discrete Nvidia GeForce
graphics. If you recall, the graphics is the Achilles’ Heel of the 1420
so this is a big deal. It’s a bigger deal that it’s all for $1100.
This doesn’t change anything for me just yet. We’re
still waiting to hear from Lind about the M1330. The two laptops are still
neck-and-neck. The deciding factor will likely be which laptop has the larger
capacity hard-drive available. This M1710 has only 93 gigs, and it stays full.
