    if its within the 15 days, a sales person if you feel the scratch reduces your enjoyment of the unit and want to return it. Tech support if you want to keep it and need someone to replace the screen.

    Looks like they are going away from the 10 model number jump to a single number jump. E.g., CX200 to CX210X; now it's C-140X to C-141X.

    10 hours of battery life "When DA FACK DID we GET 10 HOURS of BATTERY LIFE?" :D

    Perhaps with the 12-cell standard and 6-cell modular bay battery will you probably get up to 10 hours. I see that as being feasible only if you minimize wireless radios (Bluetooth, WiFi), the screen brightness to low, and you're not doing anything intensive except for maybe inking in OneNote or typing up a Word document.

    Realistically, I see that battery combo providing 7-8 hours of total battery life -- but it will be a bit on the heavy side.

    come on. no... I have twelve cells and it doesn't come close to this. But the new battery technology that will come out in a couple of years will be awesome.
