Dell New Inspiron 17" @ $899

My sister is looking for a 17'' laptop that will last for a while.

I saw this one on dell.ca.

PROCESSOR Inspiron 17 Notebook
HARD DRIVE 500GB, 5400 RPM

BLUETOOTH Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Internal (2.1)

Cpu has 2 cores but hyperthreading is supported.
Didn't see an option to select a 9 cell battery.
Don't know if it has a HDMI output.

Is this the best choice for this price range? I saw the Toshiba L550 at Costco for something close to $829 but I think it had the I3 330M which is 20-25% slower and integrated gpu.
