    When I go to the Toshiba site and navigate to the Tablet PCs, I don't even see the m400. If I follow the link from here, I see it, but when I navigate there, I just see the m200.

    I was first considering Fujitsu t4020. With the announcement of M400 and its spec., it seems that M400 (the preconfigured one) is cheaper than Fujitsu t4020 (even cheaper than the reseller price), am I right?
    Then, several questions come to me:
    1. Is core duo a real necessary? Can I change the CPU to Core Duo when Windows Vista is on the market?
    2. After buying the preconfigured M400, is it possible to add bluetooth module in the future from Toshiba?
    3. Is SXGA worthy?( if yes, I have to consider customized M400)

    1) Depends on your needs, but the chips use the same socket, so it is technically possible.
    2) I don't know if it has the antenna in all of them, if so, you should be okay.
    3) Worthy of what? This is a personal call based on your needs.

    As far as I can tell, the option to customize the M400 has been taken off the site (although the price shows up if you search for M400, but if you click on it you still can't customize)

    Maybe we will see some sort of a change when it comes back?

    The price for a customizable M400 now starts at $1804.05, however the customize link appears broken so I would expect more changes soon.... hopefully.

    Dope, you'd have to check their appropriate international site. I would guess it will be several weeks at least.

    The 2 things I observed new (as far as external design goes) on the Portege M400 were an extra stylus and the small button that lets the screen swivel to the tablet mode. Has toshiba introduced other changes in the external design (buttons, dimensions, etc) of M400 that make it different from M200?
