Hi chaps,

Thank you very much for all the responses.

Nerodevil: it's a clean install and none of Dell's usual bloatware is install. It has a clean install of Win7 and the necessary drivers....

Update: So, I got the new system delivered today and found it's making the exact same noise as the old one. At this point, it's clear that this is a design defect. To all those who are considering...

I'm waiting for prices to come down and storage to increase. I feel that paying $150 for an 80 gigs drive is too expensive. My current installation of Windows 7 and Microsoft Office takes about 45...
