The D has a good selection of ports. The D replaces the D and provides quite an overhaul in both design change and internal components. If you have a layover at an airport or limited time to plug-in a notebook before you have to be pulled away from a wall outlet again, this can be a wwireless.
I listened to music CDs while working on the D and experienced no odd background noises that distorted the music, it was a clean listening experience.

I imagine with the nVidia graphics card option this notebook may get a bit warmer, but with the configuration I have that uses Intel integrated graphics this is not the case. This provides for an industrial and muscular look, quite the opposite of the light-grey and white design of the Dell Inspiron line of notebooks.
