I'm looking at used/refurbished models. On ebay You can get a decent looking XT for ~$400. The cheapest XT2 I've found is ~$800 at dell outlet. (btw, why does dell outlet sell the XT and XT2 for the same price? Why would you choose the XT over the XT2 if they cost the same?) I'm currently using a gateway C140XL, but am looking for a smaller, lighter form factor. I remember drooling over the XT when I was first looking for this, 3 years ago, but it was obviously out of my price range then. My main uses are as a travel computer - e-mail and internet, and to run my media on my projector (through VGA port). Nothing terribly intensive. So what's the advantage of the XT2 over the XT. Is the extra cost justified based on my use? I know don't really need a tablet for this. I got one primarily for school note taking, but the interface is 10x better than using a touchpad, or carrying a mouse.
