    Dell Vostro

    I spec'd one of these laptops up for myself... but does anyone have any first hand experience with them? Most wondering on the:

    Durability
    Battery life
    Screen Quality (14inch ver)

    Can you can get the 64bit versions of vista from dell? Or do i need to ring them instead of ordering online?
