FS: Loaded Dell XPS M1330 laptop

I have owned this computer for 14 months now, and it has never let me down. In January 2008 when I purchased this, it was configured on dell.com at around $2500 (I don't remember the exact price). The XPS line of computers is Dell's premium line. I am selling because I don't need a laptop. It just sits, lid shut, on my desk connected to all peripherals. There is nothing wrong or broken, and I have never come close to dropping it. I take care of my stuff.

$900 shipped OBO. I am very open to reasonable offers.

a couple quick highlights before I get into the specifications
4-year (in home 24/7 etc etc) transferable warranty! (34 months left)
802.11N wireless (the fastest, farthest reaching wireless available)
9-cell extended battery. When this was new I could easily get 5 hours and 30 minutes of battery life. Currently it gets about 4 hours and 30 minutes. It raises the back of the laptop for easier typing and also better ventilation.

This is a very slim (think Macbook) 13.3 inch (1280x800 WXGA) widescreen laptop, not a typical bulky Windows laptop. The keyboard is arguably the best laptop keyboard out there (certainly my favorite). Color is "midnight blue". Very classy.

Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, 2.2GHz, 4MB cache, 800MHz FSB
NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 128MB graphics card
320GB 7200RPM HDD upgraded from 160GB
DVD-RW 8x slot loading drive (24x for CD-RW)
2 megapixel webcam
VGA out
HDMI out (easily hook it up to your HDTV with audio!)
two 3.5mm (headphone) jacks, one 3.5mm line-in
fingerprint reader
touch sensitive media controls
slim, travel friendly charger
2 USB ports
8-in-1 flash card reader (no need for camera cables anymore)
media remote control

OS and Software
Windows 7 Ultimate Beta (currently installed)
Windows Vista Home Premium
Microsoft Office 2007
Adobe Photoshop CS4

This computer comes with all documentation/manuals/restore discs/etc that came in the box, along with the specially fitted travel case.

If you buy this, I could do one of three things.
1) Do a clean install of Windows 7 beta
2) Do a clean install of Windows Vista Home Premium
3) Delete all of my personal things, leaving the computer running Windows 7 beta with the programs listed above and whatever other free programs I have.

Note about Windows 7 beta: It expires August 1st.

If you are interested but hesitant, google XPS M1330 reviews. Many say it is the best portable laptop available.

If there is one problem with this computer, it is that the P in XPS came off the lid due to insufficient adhesive from the factory. Other than that, literally nothing!

Thanks for looking!
