i am planning to sell of my old system and thinking of buying a new one...
so far i have found out that dell is the cheapest.....
this is what i am planning to buy....

they are ready to throw in the 5.1 surround, floppy drive and a extra optical drive for a discounted price as well...
now here is what i am asking your opinions on:
what do you guys think.. is this alright??? do i need to add anything else in there? i am already way past my budget and can spare another 50-100 dollars...
are dell systems any good... ?i do not wish to spend lots of money and then find out that i might have been ripped off . really really confused about this....
has anyone had any experience with them? particularly dell australia??
Dell UK laptops are tidy, though rather pricey. If you shop around you can usually find them cheaper elsewhere. I think Buntine is from Australia, so maybe he will have some reccomendations.

thanks for all your replies.... alright.. i will scrap the wireless keyboard.... i was a bit unsure about that one anyway
BTW just wanted to make a small update... instead of going for the X300 series.. i am opting for the X800 one (i think that is the 9800 series)... dell is giving me a pretty good deal on it... and i am also opting for the ultra sharp 17"in instead of the normal one.
