not sure if it's been mentioned but a couple of heads up

the 6 and 9 cell battery both stick out a fair bit.

also if you buy through the epp site the 30 day return option dosn't apply.

Video Card:

T500 - Integrated or ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 with 256MB
W500 - ATI Fire GL M86-GL with 512MB

LCD Display: More selection available with the W500 including WUXGA

did you compare it to the deal Tiger direct has on pre configured t400?

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/ ... =T70-14199


i was going to buy via lenovo but the tiger direct one turned out cheaper by $200 when spec'd the same....although some of the features like fingerprint reader etc would be features i'd not pay extra for when customizing a computer.

my t400 came out to $1078 tax in shipped to AB

They're the same GPU core with 120 shaders. The W500 just has the extra 256MB of memory which probably won't help too much given the GPU is a mid-level gamer at best. The W500 also gets optimized drivers for CAD and other workstation applications.

Cancelled order on X200 and ordered the T400 through Tiger Direct, which ended up being a better deal surprisingly then ordering the T400 with this deal. (As mentioned a couple posts back)

Was too worried about the poor screen on the X200 and 14inch gives better viewing area then 12inch.

Thanks OP though.

I agree.

I'm thinking should I cancel the order from Lenovo and order from TG.
