    you might have to download drivers from the dell website. but other than that, it should work.

    don't buy off a production line. go to a small shop that will build it specifically for you and will test it before handing it over to you. it will cost a little bit more, but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys, so fork it over.

    these dell's, gateway's, hp's and all these other pre-made package deals come off a production line and are delivered to your house without having even been turned on once. quality control in these places specifies that maybe only one in a hundred, or one in a thousand (it will vary from company to company) will actually be started up and tested. i can't tell you the amount of people i have spoken to that have bought a package over the phone or internet or something where windows wouldn't even start up the first time they turned it on.
