The compaq version (x1000) is more configurable with more high end options with better pricing.
The case is aluminum.
The 9200 is 8x and it also is set at higher gpu and mem frequencies.
For anyone else interested, you can actually use a coupon to get another 10% off (SV7095). I think it expires on the 12th though.
I have been looking at this computer for a week now and have finally decided it is the best route to go for me. The sager 4060 is getting sent back. I configured with 128MB of mem, the 1.5 proc, integrated wireless, integrated bluetooth, WUXGA screen, and a 60GB 4200 drive. With the coupon that comes to 1626.20 before $100 rebate. Pickup another 512MB from Crucial for $112 and you have a much nicer machine than a simlilarly configured 4060 (2.4, 512 MB) for around $50 less.
But that is just my opionion. Better screen, much cooler most likely, lighter, nicer vid card, longer batter life..
It does not have as high of a FSB and used PC2100 versus PC2700 in the 4060 but for what I do, programming and gaming, the x1000 is the better deal.
It does not have a floppy though. There is a usb floppy available from HP for $50 that comes with a $50 mail in rebate when you buy it with this laptop though.
