Cons: Little too bulky, no firewire port,
Summary: My friend has purchased the D810 already and I was able to take a close look at it and ordered one myself today. My model is a base model with 64mb ATI x300 graphics card and configured it with SXGA+ screen which is very nice. All for about $1400 shipped. This laptop performs very well in all applications from what I've noticed, and is excellent for some gaming as well. Of course my friend has x600 graphics card, however those are upgradeable in case I needed one in the future, they may even have a better one by then. Next thing I will need is 7200 rpm HDD and I will be all set for quite some time. This model is also little lighter than D800 model or Inspiron 8600 was. I am very happy with my purchase. Anyone interested in desktop replacement notebook that's fairly mobile should look at this guy.
