I can understand the desire for the 1210, I would like one. But I refuse to pay the premium for the XPS, I will wait and see if an Inspiron 1205 comes out anytime soon, My wife pretty much never uses her 1705 so I am looking to get rid of it. I have a 12in(4:3) fujitsu tablet/notebook PC, and seitching between the 2 is dreadful. THe res on the fujitsu 12" is not as high as the 1705, and the screen area just sucks, looking at Word, Excel, and webpages just blows on the thing, but its really nice on the road.
I take both systems everywhere with me, in my targus backpack. Heavy?, HELL YES, but its nice to have both systems along in case I need them in my job.
