If I could make the perfect phone, I'd put the Inspire (software & RAM) inside the Captivate's externals (and leave its 2GB of application memory). That's just me. I think I am in the minority. I think the Inspire feels too bulky, in comparison, sometimes. That being said, I still think the Inspire is the best Android device available on AT&T, I'm just not a huge fan of its build style.
As you said, it depends on everyone's preferences. For example a few years ago I got a Nokia E63. After a few weeks I had the chance to hold a Nokia E71, which has almost the same specs as the E63 but build out of metal. I sold my E63 yo get the E71. I loved the solid built feeling. Same case with the Inspire.
