Reason for sale? Moving to Apple MacBook.

This laptop is just over 12 months old. It is in excellent condition with no marks or scratches. I have really looked after it.

Battery life is "as new". I normally use it in hotel rooms, so remove the battery and plug in to mains power.

Extra features include a button on the battery so you can check the charge state without booting up. WIFI Catcher lets you check for available WIFI hotspots without booting up.
Dell Media Direct allows you to watch DVDs and listen to music without booting into Windows.

I purchased Vista Home Premium for this laptop, so will provide the software also.
I have all original manuals and packaging. If you prefer Windows XP, I have the original Media Centre edition that I can re-install.

Is this still available and is it easy to upgrade the HDD to something larger?
