The 15" SXGA+ FlexView is one of the best LCD panels out there; awesome viewing angle, great colors, and plenty bright.

Decent price, but you need the 9-cell, hands down; unless you won't be using it on battery much ;)

loaded but with a 6-cell battery? i'd go for a slower CPU and trade it for a 7200rpm hard drive and a larger battery.

I believe the T series is somewhat slimmer (physically) but loses several features such as firewire. It is a more "work-only" machine.

hey fbrdphreak,

What ever happened to your tests on the Dell 6000 for effects of dual channel mode on the built in video?

Personally, I would definitely add on a warranty for an expensive laptop. The LCD alone could cost several hundred dollars to replace.
