have Dell XPS M1330 laptops with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processors and

my book. What do you think? If you knew someone had been given a PC
with a list price of $1,956 and then wrote nice things about the
operating system that came with it would you be inclined to think
that they might be just a wee bit influenced by the almost two
