If you like the small form factor I would defiantely go with the X series. If it's the optical drive thing that has you concerned you can get the media slice for the X40 and then you can add an optical drive a spare HD even an extra battery fits in the bay. Even with the base atached it is still small than the t series and weighs in at 4.9Lbs so still a very portable computer. Also a USB optical drive will work very nicely.
