|Look, you don't have to shit people with your ignorance. T42s and nc8ks are all over my campus and I am the dorm tech. I have seen and used these things. They are both nice machines but completely different. The T42 has room for 1 optical drive and is less than 6 lbs and 1.22" thick with the optical drive. The nc8000 is MUCH bulkier since it can take two optical drives, and even with 1 optical drive it is a beast to hold--it's over 7 lbs. and 1.55" thick with the optical drive in. Any idiot looking at those dimensions will know that these two notebooks are NOT in the same weight/size class. So stop making comparisons between the two lines.|

If so, you could get the pricing the way that I did (just by calling and asking for it.)
But then, you would probably have to pay duty to get it back to Canada, wouldn't you?
(Sorry, just thinking aloud to see if there is some easy way to help you get that pricing.)
