I know, I'm just trying to be pessimistic so if it ships around the estimated date, I won't be too disappointed and if it comes sooner, it'll be a lovely surprise  :)

Oh, in that case, I think your laptop will arrive sometime in November.

Here is the print screen of an example.  I didnt bold a word here though.  I'm not sure how these pictures will turn out on your monitor though...but it's better than nothing.  Make sure that your browser DOES NOT re-size these pictures.  Firefox and IE tend to re-size the picture to fit the page.  You can fix this by just zooming to 100%.

I know it says 100% on the picture, but it is 125%

This is what a web page looks like in IE at 125%.

The fonts actually look pretty clear.  The advertisement on the right is a bit pixelated though.

My vision isnt too horrible -- I do need glasses to look at a blackboard from far away -- and to watch a movie in a theater, but I find that I don't have too much difficulty reading text at 100% on my screen.

Hope this helps!

Hey donvito, thank you very much for your reply, I really appreciate your help!

donvito, I tried your links, but unfortuantely both links open a page that says: "Un-Authorized Referer". Thank you for your effort...I am sure it would have been helpful. (I wonder if the text size difference (WXGA+/WXGA) is a little like the difference in text size here between the quoted text and the response text).

It sounds like you are fairly happy with the text you are viewing in Word, and with some modification, web pages. If I could ask you...if you had it to do over again though, would you still go with the WXGA+ screen or would you choose the WXGA?

Thank you very much donvito!!

Paste them into your address bar, hit enter, then hit refresh, and the links will work.

Cant wait till i get it! The estimated ship date is 07.27, so we'll see.

Maybe I just got lucky... I went with the T61 15.4 widescreen (WXGA+) 9 cell battery, 160gig 5400hd, 2.0ghz 4mb cache chip, 1gig ram (in 1 dimm so I can throw another 2 gig in from newegg) and all the other bells and whistles, and my ship date says 7/20.  I ordered mine on July 3rd also!

Ship date isn't for forever (08/28), which works for me because Chicago doesn't start until late September.

I'm cutting and pasting from the email, so hopefully this answers your specs question:

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T7100 (2MB cache/1.8GHz/800Mhz FSB)
Memory    2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
LCD and Camera    Slim and Light LED Display with VGA Webcam
Video Card    128MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 8400M GS
Hard Drives    Size: 160GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)
OPERATING SYSTEM(S)    Genuine Windows® Vista Home Premium Edition
Network Card and Modem    Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
Combo or DVD+RW Drive    CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW Drive)
Wireless Networking    Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card
Fingerprint Reader    Biometric Fingerprint Reader
Bluetooth Options    Built-in Bluetooth capability (2.0 EDR)
Juicy: UChicago

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

For those who have received their laptops, when did you order them?

Ordered 6/28, received today.  It originally said the ship date was August 21, but they're having issues with the ship date  on the website.

oh awesome, I ordered on 6/30, ship date says 8/2, so maybe it will arrive shortly...

Hey also, does anyone know the brand of ram that comes in the t61s?  I got 1gb and want to buy another gb, was hoping to get from the same manufacturer.  I searched online, but was unable to find the manufacturer.  Thanks.
