lighter screen = different technology = less power consumption = longer battery life
the x61s also has a lower power consumption processor, again for longer battery life.
you're right, i didn't catch the processor difference. think that is enough to justify the cost? and what of these crazy long delays... will they be straight with me if i call and do an order over the phone instead of online?
No they will not be straight with you. They have never once been so with me. Sorry to sound so bitter but it really is the truth. They have an incentive to make you believe you will get it soon, I have no incentive to give you warning. Just prepare yourself for 2 months and then it will not suck so bad.
that just isn't acceptable... i need this in my hands by orientation. i really want a lenovo, but maybe i should just go with the dell offer through UT (which includes 24hr service on-site):
