Still costs more than the HP, but I care about small and light, and the Lenovo is a bit smaller and lighter than the HP even with the 6 cell battery and certainly with the 3 cell (which should be good enough for my use most of the time). And I like the trackpoint.
I got it for $460 after taxes and with a $30 off coupon (props/+rep to LOL_Wut_Axel for that). The trackpoint was also one of the things I wanted to have in a laptop, but I just couldn't stretch my budget (~$550) for the X120e. If you can get it for that cheap, I'd go for it! Lenovo is a really good brand from what I understand.

It's useful for bedtime surfing and watching the hour-glass but most office apps are a bit hard to use on that screen.
I completely understand this. My last laptop was a 15.4", so I'm wondering if this new 11.6" will be hard to adjust to. Hopefully it won't be, because then I'd have major buyer's remorse... I'll be doing a review of my dm1z as soon as I get it, so stay tuned.
Oh! Nice find! I'm not sure how to update the poll, but I've already bought the dm1z anyway. If you show me how to add it to the poll, I'll add it so that anyone who looks at this thread in the future can be aware of that option too!
