Hey Louis, I purchased a precision m4300 6 months ago and is rock
solid, and graphics are superb for both games and work.  I haven't had
time to install linux on it yet but will soon.  I originally purchased
an IBM t61
and found it really slow to work with, so I returned it and got the
dell.  No complaints what soever yet, I also purchased the extended 3
year warranty which also covers drops.  One thing that I noticed
though is that the battery life is not that good, and that can be
attributed to the power hungry nvidia card it comes with.

When things get too complicated, it sometimes makes sense to stop and
wonder: Have I asked the right question?
