HELP!!!!
Right now dell is offering a dell for:

$849 - Inpirson 17R
Intel Core i7-2670M 2.2GHz /1333 MHz DDR3, GT2, 650-1300 MHz Gfx Turbo/ 6M (2nd Gen Processor)
8GB Memory, 640GB HDD
NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ GT 525M (128-bit) 2GB
Blu Ray reader/DVDR
17.3" HD+ (1600 x 900) LED Display
1.0 M Webcam
48W (6-Cell) Battery

OR...

$1099 - XPS 17
Intel Core i7-2670M 2.2GHz /1333 MHz DDR3, GT2, 650-1300 MHz Gfx Turbo/ 6M (2nd Gen Processor)
8GB Memory, 1 TB HDD
NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ GT 555M 3GB
Blu Ray reader/DVDR
17.3" FHD (1080p) with 2.0MP HD Webcam
90W (9-Cell) Battery

What makes the XPS better (expensive) than the Inspiron 17R, they're almost the same!

XPS 17 has a better video card, better screen, larger hard drive space, and longer battery life (9 cell). If you don't need any of these features, get the cheaper laptop.
