I'll be getting one. Problem is the extra 50 bucks of Canadian Rape Tax that Dell has decided to add on. If you take the current value of USD vs CAD dollar, it comes to roughly 849. So where does this extra 50 bucks come in? Kinda pisses me off but I'll be getting one none the less. I just need to see if that processor upgrade is worth it.

Well, it looks like I won't be getting one. On top of the extra 100 dollars slapped on, a RAM upgrade is also double in price what Americans pay. ****ing god dammit. I hate you America. :/

I ordered one with the SU7300 & 4GB ram.
I'm also putting an Intel SSD when it comes in.
post #9 of 309
complete let down... i was pumped for this... but a SU core2duo, 800mhz ram, lack of a dvd drive, and an 11" screen all kinda points to useless...

They should have made a 14" ~5.5 pounds with an i5 and the same graphics chip

That's pretty much the Sony CW. It has am i5 and 330M. It's more like 6.5 lbs though.
