They did it again. While I was waiting on my P100-ST9012 to ship next week, they snuck in the new version of their gaming notebook P105-S9312 on their website. [url="http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/cmod.to?seg=HHO&coid=-30597"] They threw in everything but a speedy hard drive and even an internal blue tooth I compared the spec sheet between thee two (P100-ST9012 and the P105-S9312) and found minor differences. Other than the obvious (the new P105-9312 has a faster CPU, more and faster ram, much bigger but slower HD) the P100-ST9012 does have a Gigabit Ethernet (instead of 10/100 Base TX Ethernet) and an infrared port. I have cancelled my order from Toshiba direct for the P100 and decided to wait for Amazon.com to get the P105-S9312 in stock. Money I would save from not having to pay the sales tax and the $150 rebate from Amazon is more then enough for me to get the new P105 (not to mention all the other boosts in power). Who knows, while I wait for this one maybe Toshiba may surprise me with a new merom based notebook with everything I wanted.
