Ok, Madcat, here's the thing with that... mobility is more important to me, which means that x1400 is a better choice... BUT rather than get the integrated intel chip, I chose the x1400 which can be upgraded non-oem in the future.
I had to pick the features that were most important with my budget (couldnt' spend more than 1900 on everything). If it costs me money or performance in the long run, so be it. I'd rather live within my means.
If I sound a little defensive, I am... I got all the help I was after and then FOLLOWING my purchase you come on and attack my choice. Thanks for the help.
