Would this be a good value for a college laptop? I'd get the 2 GB RAM upgrade from crucial as well, in place of the 512 (it's 60 bucks, vs dell's $150 2 GB upgrade).

I already have office XP pro and AVG 7.5 pro (long as they will work on vista). And I have a 120 GB external HDD plus my 3.0GHz desktop with a pair of 320 HDD's in it. The laptop will just be for portability- I'll be doing everything off the desktop except the stuf i need to carry with me.
