I am currently selling my laptop, this thing has served me well but I bought a new laptop and I really don't need two! This thing is a beast but I needed something more portable.

Here are the specs:
Dell Inspiron 1720 - Out of warranty
Core 2 Duo T7500 - 64-bit, 2.2GHz, 2 cores
NVidia 8600M GS (512MB) discrete graphics
160GB internal 2.5" HDD - This machine has dual hard drive bays and can accept any other 2.5" standard height (sorry, no 1TB drives) SATA hard drive. I have a caddy for the second drive so you don't need anything extra to install one.
802.11G Interl 3945 Wifi
DVD+/-RW drive (8X write I think?)
Front media buttons, built-in webcam (1.3mp I think? Don't hold me to that)
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit clean install with legitimate license key
17" 1920x1200 screen (I don't think you can get laptops with such high resolution screens any more)

This thing is a bit on the big and heavy side, but it has reasonably good discrete graphics, a quick processor and an amazing screen with very high resolution. The case is generally in very good condition except the dell logo itself on the lid is a little bit dented. It has always been well cared for and has only been run on battery 10 or 15 times in its entire life, so the battery is still in very good shape. If you do software development and need a laptop with a lot of screen space and room for a second (up to 750GB, no 12mm 1TB drives) hard drive this laptop is perfect, or at least that's why I bought it.

Here are some pics of the laptop itself [EDIT: I didn't realize the first set of pictures were such crap, here are some much better ones now]:

I am asking $350 OBO and am located in Royal Oak, however I would be willing to meet downtown during the day or anywhere in the NW after 6PM during the week.
