    Funny how I can't seem to find any weight specifications, nor was I able to download the spec sheet. Did anybody have more luck?

    Does anyone else notice how you get screwed over just for wanting to customize? A single core 1.66 40 gig 2x256 ram system starts at 1899 to customize while the same single core 80 gig hd 1x 512 ram costs 1699 with 3 yr warranty (opposed to 1). Makes it a really tough decision, is dual core worth it? it's not like im going to be gaming or video editing with shared graphics. i might have to go with the preconfig version...

    I'm not sure many people will see an advantage with core duo. I think it's more of a marketing gimmick really. But if you're a heavy multi-tasker, it's probably worthwhile.

    Will the release of Vista give the Core Duo a greater advantage over a single core?

    I think the non-customizable version has a Intel® Core™ Solo processor, this is different from Intel Duo Core. So this is not an Intel Duo Core tablet at all. Am I right?
