Thanks for the links, but I can see why they are selling cheap.

They are "recertified" with small hard drives and only 512MB DDR.

Not very attractive deals, IMHO.

$399 is cheap for a laptop, no matter how you slice it. However, I received a Dell catalog yesterday - Vostro 1000, 1GB DDR2, 80 GB Hard Drive for the same price, upgradable to 2GB RAM and Dual Core for $65. Looks like buy.com has some work to do on that price. :grin:

I don't know about rights, but I've got the CD's to get it done. ;)
The D600 is at least 4 if not 5 years old. The D610, D620, D630 and the E line to come out this year have replace it.

I have one and waiting on the E to get a replacement. They are good laptops provided you have a brand new battery. They tend to last a year or so.

But for 400 you can get something with a tad better processor. A memory upgrade would be nothing in any case.
