After a very stressful weekend deciding on a final config and driving my girlfriend crazy......and not in a good way, I finally did it. The discount was too good to miss. I will use some of that money to buy a gaming mouse and joystick plus a carry bag.
Thanks everyone for your input to my posts. Thanks very much to Luke and Sean at PCT for answering all my Q.
Will let you all know when I get it, expecting 1-1.5 wks as I ordered the WSXGA screen which is out of stock.
