I need to get a new computer and I'm thinking I'll get a Dell laptop. I'm on a pretty tight budget and haven't shopped for a computer in a while so I'm looking for some help. The Inspiron 9300 looks nice for trading with the 17 in. screen. I'm thinking I should go with UXGA display since it allows better resolution. Do I need to get the 256 MB video card if I'm going to be plugging in another monitor and viewing several charts, etc.? Also, this system will support an extra monitor out of the box right? Will I wish for the DVD burner if I don't get it? I assume the 1.6GHz Pentium M will be plenty fast for me? Is a 7200 RPM drive really worth the extra money? Any other considerations? Thanks for any advice.
