I'm putting my M1730 up for sell, its basically new. I bought this laptop very recently, but its just way to misfit for what I use it for. Its ideal as a DTR, as the package makes it one of the most powerful laptop, but not as a mobility laptop.
For what its worth, I'm throwing a very decent bag that cost me 50 quid in total. Which was delivered to me on monday:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250386343228

For your reference, this is not that 1083 pounds Dell deal, I paid far more than that. I'll upload pics with my username on it ASAP.
If you think its too much, have a look at ebay price:http://computers.shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Laptops__m1730_W0QQQ5ftrkparmsZ72Q253A1690Q257C66Q253A2Q257C65Q253A12Q257C39Q253A1QQ_catrefZ1QQ_dmptZUKQ5fComputingQ5fLaptopsQ5fEHQQ_sacatZ177QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQ_sopZ16QQ_scZ1
My ebay username is cashfruit, as I'm new on this forum, feel free to send message to my ebay account to make sure.
I'll soon post it on ebay if there is no buyer here.
8800m GTX SLI is identical to 9800m GT SlI dell now offers, identical core voltage, clock, etc, both have 96 stream processors(X2); the WUXGA screen is also very good.
The main reason for selling is I want a mobility workstation, against advice of a friend, I got this cos of its raw spec. But as I got it, I'm thrown over by its weight and size. I'd love to keep it, but as I need to move alot, this is not the laptop for me.
