    Seems like a good deal for 55k. However hi-end gaming wont be possible, If you crave gaming then get the MSI Megabook with radeon 9600 mobility gfx. Costs around 70k i think.

    i agree with blade-shared graphics memory isnt good enough 4 high end gamind. else it seems like a decent config. and as 4 ISDN, since u need an ISDN modem, u hav 2 connect it 2 ur laptop if it's an external 1. i dont know if u get PCMCIA cards 4 ISDN modem. u could look at other similar options frm dell.
