Greetings: As the news headline indicates, as of this morning, you can now place orders for the 2710p online. I did this morning and have the following tidbits of information for this forum, which I have consulted many times: They are projecting a two week delivery time. We'll see. The Ultra-Slim Battery and Expansion Base are not available yet. They think that it will be in August. We'll see. If you don't purchase one of the "Smart Buy" configurations, you may feel somewhat stupid. There are incentives that they have incorporated into the pricing that make them significantly cheaper. The two top configurations are $600 apart, yet the ONLY difference is that the CHEAPER one has a bigger HDD (100GB v. 80 GB). Since they are the same speed/throughput, it really feels stupid to pay more for the lesser configuration. I'll post with a review and information when it arrives.
