Honestly... this is disappointing, but I'm going to have to go for the Z62j over the Z63a
I mean, no, it's not ugly, but the Z63a is just ... well, woah. The problem is, it seems like the Z62f/j is just going to be more bang for the buck - they're saying a Core Duo setup is going to cost almost exactly the same price as an equivalent Pentium M setup, except with all the performance gains associated with the Duo. Plus, I was never honestly quite comfortable with the fact that the Z63a had integrated graphics, even though I don't plan to game much...
Can any of you resellers confirm that the Z62f is going to go for the same kinds of prices as the Z63a, with equivalent hardware? (And, if you have the info, on the price difference between the f and the j). Also, any comments on the build quality? The quality of the speakers? (they seem to be improved!) Basically I just want to know more about it
it's hard enough trying to stick with one plan even when you're just considering options that are currently available! :P
EDIT: by the way, never mind. Screw the Core Duo :P it'll be hard enough to install linux on a Z63a as it is, without an entirely new build with no documentation to work with (plus I think I might be underestimating the price of the new Z62f/Z62j)
