    Found this from a reputable site. Would you guys consider this a good deal?

    1.6GHz L7500 DUAL CORE
    2GB RAM
    120GB 5400RPM
    MULTITOUCH SCREEN
    8-CELL BATTERY (7 HRS!)
    12.1" LCD
    3 YEAR WARRANTY
    1 GB Turbo Memory

    Good reseller ratings, so shouldn't be a problem there. Was thinking about getting one for school (instead of the M1330 I have on the way) and was wondering what you experts thought.

    Sounds good
    Mine's the same spec except 3yr accidental protection, 3GB RAM and a DVD burner (intel turbo, RAM and dvd were 3rd party)
    It came out to be 1850 for me, after tax

    Yea, I think I would kinda prefer the SXGA screen also, but isn't the XGA multi touch actually the more expensive option?

    I do like high res, but think I may enjoy the multi touch. Are the XGA screens still a lot brighter than the SXGA like they were on the x60?

    You should know that it is not a multi-touch screen, just an active digitizer. No passive. In other words, you can use the pen, but not your finger:).

    Linda, no disrespect, but are you familiar with the X61 tablet? They only offer two screen options. Either a hi-res (SXGA+) with an active digitizer, or the XGA screen with dual digitizers. Indeed, this one that limitsc is looking at has both passive and active digitizers.

    From what I've seen, it's a pretty good price. I use my touchscreen all the time, so I think it's a good investment.

    I'm not entirely sure if it's touchscreen or not.

    which seems to suggest that it's not a touchscreen. But yet,
    Personally, I'd have to say that it's most likely not a touchscreen, but I'd email them just to make sure.

    That is true for most CTO orders (with the exception I believe of education discounts), but resellers often have XGA non-touchscreens.

    Found you a x61 with a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo processor (Better than 1.6GHz)
    Only has 1GB of DDR2 667MHz

    Price = $1199.00

    Add an additional 1GB of Kingston PC2-5300 DDR2 667MHz for only $60.00

    Total = $1260
    Your getter a better tablet pc for nearly $260 cheaper.

    What do you mean "No such thing exists"? The details of the tablet pc is printed clear as day. I've personally never bought a computer from this company, but they are a legit business and offer full warrenty and buyer's protection. What are you complaining about?
