OK, I bought the bullet and got one. It'll be arriving in a few days. t9400 2.53 ghz. Win7 Ultimate 64 bit. I picked up 8gb ram at Fry's. Full Office 2007 (so I get to try out One Note for the first time!). Still under warranty till February too. Indoor screen, I think (he didn't mention otherwise). Got it for 600$ on ebay, plus the ram and extra modular battery, so about 675$ total. Seemed like a reasonable price to me. ?? Battery Life?? It comes with the RW DVD. I bought a used OEM modular battery separately. As the seller didn't list the main battery as high capacity, I'm assuming it isn't one. He did say it held a good charge though. What kind of battery life should I expect for the main battery- say, doing normal light stuff like surfing and word docs? And at high usage rates, like doing art programs or watching a movie? What kind of real world improvements in battery life are people getting from the high capacity batteries? Do they weigh more? What about if I put the modular battery in? Weight? I commonly see the weight listed as 4.8 lbs, but it's all a bit confusing with the modular bay. I'm assuming this "base weight" is with the DVD writer, as it normally comes pre-installed? Or is that with the weight saver, and therefore the lightest it gets? What's it like with the extra battery in instead? About the same, since the DVD writer is out, or a bit heavier and over 5 lbs? Weight Saver?? Re: the weight saver, I've had a hard time locating one on ebay. I'm looking up things like "Fujitsu t5010 weight saver". There aren't any listed on Amazon either. Does anyone have any other ideas? What's the difference in weight with it? Does it make the computer feel lop sided when that bay is essentially empty? Heat and Noise?? Right now I'm using a very quiet and cool x200t with a SSD and ThinkPad Fan Control. This allows me to be very quiet when doing low-key stuff, because the fan is essentially turned off and the SSD has no moving parts. The cpu runs in the mid-40's normally, up to the high 60's or so when doing heavier stuff. Of course, part of the reason I'm trying out the t5010 is that it's more powerful, so I guess I should expect more heat and noise? Are there any good programs to allow a kind of user engagement with the fan, so I can turn it up full throttle if I want, but keep it very very quiet (or silent!) when, say, doing a client meeting? Can I use ThinkPad Fan Control on a Fujitsu? It's a great program, but I think it works with the Lenovo BIOS, so I think that means a "no." My apologies for all the question marks. !!! LOL. Guess I got a few.
