yea, i am kind of sad i didnt wait for the x800xt... x800pro should be good bang for the buck though.. i doubt i have the keen eye to spot the difference anyhow.

Anyways, I ordered my comp a week ago and it just shipped yesterday. I believe the price drop occured today (or yesterday) on a few things, eg. the 16.1" screen, etc. Can I still call them up and ask for a refund or because it shipped yesterday is it too late?
By the way, I am a bit disappointed that the DVD +/- RW came out today (or yesterday) and the price drop would have saved me about 400 bucks but the way to do it is to set a date, and buy it then. I set the day to be June 1st and I promised myself to buy it then regardless of what else is coming out, and I think that is the way to do it. There will always be new things coming out but it is up to you do set a date.
Anyways, I did set that date about 3 months ago so I did have time to wait for new things to come out and prices to fluxuate like crazy.
Here are the specs to my comp:
