i would pay for the smallest ram also, as chances are you'll want to put 2g of ram in. unless thats part of the build option thru dell now. (last i knew you could get up to 1g of ram in the build option - but the machine will accept up to 2g.)
-as i understood from some research, windows required dell to only sell up to 1g on their machine in the build....dell themselves has a 2g option you can buy later.
or the ram could be bought elsewhere.
-so in summary, unless they truly are throwing in an upgrade for free on the ssd
and ram in the initial build - go cheap on those items and be ready to upgrade to the new ssd
and larger ram (up to 2g) that you want.
-someone correct me if i'm wrong....
