Planning on getting the D900K, if I can hold out that long. What are the Pros and Cons of the slot based Optical Drives versus tray base units. So far I have been told that the slot based units are louder and support only the standard sized disks.
Also, I see that ASUS offers their 17" screens with a non-glare option. Is this proprietary with ASUS or available with other notebooks. I do have a concern with the glare, since I spend the majority of my day rendering and performing other graphic intense tasks. My office wall is entirely glass and I usually leave the overhead fluorescent lights off.
I currently have a Dell Inspiron 8500 with the 1920x1200 screen and I have come to appreciate the vast amount of real estate it affords the user. I would stay with that resolution.
I am still hanging on...but the thread is getting weaker. I check Eurocom's site daily to see if they revise their shipping date from September to ? If, and when that happens, I will most likely pull the trigger and order the D900T. Bad timing on my part for needing a new laptop and also bad on me for falling prey to those resellers who jump the gun with their marketing.
One last thought. If those resellers taking pre-orders (Voodoo) are doing so merely on conjecture as to the specs for the D900K and you do place a pre-order, can the order be recinded if the specs change. I have no intention of ordering from Voodoo, just wondering.
