May I know where do you live?
I'm in Madrid and I just bought AMILO M 7424 a couple days ago.
And I need to suppress that this is my first laptop
Here are the main specs:
-Intel Pentium M 725 1.6GHz FSB 400MHz 2Mb L2
-TFT XGA 15'
-2xSODIMM 512Mb PC333 DDR
-ATI Mobility RADEON 9700 SE 128 Mb
-HDD IDE 80GB 4200rpm
-DVD+/-RW Dual Layer
all of that for 1399€ (around 1775 US Dollars)
And after use it for some times, I think I will just give a comment about Wossa's impression and add some.

Yes, It has a good appearance and not very heavy, only around 3 kg. The keyboard is great. The touchpad also has a scrollbar. But until now I still have trouble using the scrollbar,it's pretty hard to control the movement of the scroll (mouse scroll is much easier
But I also have some problem with the scrollbar. When I type the keyboard, I often touch the scrollbar which move the mouse cursor and that really disturb me (since sometime mouse movement can change active window and etc). The weird thing is that I don't have this problem when using my friends' laptop. And I've measured the position the touchpad with other laptops and they are the same.. but I don't have this problem in other laptop.
No dead pixel. But I think the screen is not that good. Still below HP's screen in term of angle viewing.
A little bit above average.
Still no problem until now with the DVD RW.
I'm pretty disappointed since I expect centrino could hold more than 3 hours. But this one only hold until 2 - 2,5 hours even though I only use them for browsing. I don't know why.

The keyboard zone gets warm, but nothing serious.
Totally the same situation with wossa. At first I thought there's some problem with the laptop since the keyboard get warmer and the fan frequently turned on, even though I only use it for browsing. If this is a usual case then .. there's no problem.
Another thing is, I don't like the fact that if I close the screen than the laptop goes to stand by status and the WiFi is automatically off. So If I close the screen and open it back up again in 5 seconds, I have to turn on the power again, log on again, and seeing my messenger has been logged out (because of the lost of connection).
Most of all the laptop is good, but I really disturb with this scrollbar problem, like when I write in this forum, sometimes the window get scrolled up because my palm touched the scrollbar.
I'm still thinking of returning it or not.
