I'm not so sure. My brother has dealt with Thinkpad sales a lot in the past and he claims that early to mid summer is their slowest sales time, hence the great deals that are offered.

people have POSITIVE things to say about 1L?
Just make sure you can sleep at night.
There is a 180 day trial available. I plan on trying it this fall.
You should probably try it now to see if you like it. When classes start the last thing you want to be doing is figuring out software/computer issues.
DEFINITELY get the warranty ... I got the best warranty possible (and because I ordered a Dell Latitude from the Outlet it was cheaper than when you buy a new product). I've had the laptop for almost a year now and the CD drive just started acting weird. I logged onto dell.com and chatted online with a support person who has just shipped me a 2-day delivery of a new CD. On top of that, my cat had scratched the laptop screen (nothing major, but annoying) and I asked if that was covered in my warranty. It is and so now I'm having a technician come tomorrow (literally, tomorrow) and replace my whole screen for free. These are actually really small things, but imagine if you lost all your data! (don't forget, yous hould DEFINITELY buy an external hard drive and USE it to back up your stuff regardless!)
1. Is it too late? Can I go back and get one?
2. Should the fact that itís a ThinkPad allow me to rest easier?
