My advice is get a D520 and an LCD monitor for the screen. My experience as that the more portable laptop is the more I like it, and the problem of a small screen is solver when you're at your desk by plugging in to a 19" LCD.

I like the D820.

One big thing to check is the lcd screen resolution. If your eyes are good, you will probably prefer the higher resolution lcd monitor, so that your windows can be bigger. If your eyes are bad, you'll just blow up the font size and lose most of the benefit, so save the money and get the lower resolution screen.

Also check for things like IEEE 1394 ports and whatnot. The D820 I used had one, and it made playing with MAC users a little easier.

I've used an 820 before and it was one of the better laptops from Dell that I've had the pleasure of using. – Chris Jan 29 '10 at 19:19
