Well I rolled the dice and just ordered the new Sentia m3400. I already have a Area 51 Desktop, so I was just looking for a small, thin and light notebook for web surfing and occasional graphic editing.
This will be replacing my Compaq V2030US which I had for a year. Within a year I've had stuck pixels, a bad cmos battery, and last week the LCD backlight just kicked the bucket.
Alienware states a ship date of 1/23, However my Desktop I purchased two years ago took almost two months to get to my door so I'm figuring I'll see the m3400 by the end of February if I'm lucky.
Once I get it I'll be sure to post a review. My specs are list below:
