Hummm... I have a T42 and I love it!!!. Let's see: Sturdy construction, no flex, no cracks, metal hinges (attention to this, you should always prefer this spec) magnesium alloy and carbon fibers, (I think titanium is a legend...) 14" footprint the ideal size for my taste, not too small not too large, and yes 8,5" x 11,3" screen size. Resolution and brightness, a minor flaw, can live with it. Keyboard, pointstick and pad the best in the market. Well perfomance is ok and last but not least: software update and overall support 1A. So enjoy this little jewels no matter which series G, R, X, T, Z... all are excellent!!!
And ... Merry Christmas to you all!
