NaT - do you know how much the T43 weighs while traveling, with the AC Adapter - I'm guessing it would be approximately 2.5kg +/-? I always take my T43 around in a small laptop trolley with wheels. I find it a bit too heavy if I have to carry it around with me all day, especially in the hot HK summers.
I poked around the Lenovo site
and found this:
T43 with 14.1inch display:
* Width: 311 mm (12.2 in)
* Depth: 255 mm (10.0 in)
* 26.6 to 31 mm (1.0 to 1.2 in)
* Configured system weight (with DVD-ROM or CD-ROM): 2.22 kg (4.9 lb)
* Battery pack (Li-Ion): 325 g (0.72 LB)
* AC adapter: 360 g (0.795 LB)
* Power cord for AC adapter: 90g (0.19lb)
* DVD drive: 345 g (0.76 LB)
The tabook has the W500
w/ 9-cell starting at 2.8kg (6.2lb), and the datasheet says 6-cell models start at 2.63kg (5.8lb).
Also, the datasheet says the Intel P9500 has 3MB L2 cache, and not 6MB as listed in the HK image scan. I assumed the image scan was incorrect, but Intel's own website lists 6MB cache
This model is quite a bit wider than my T43 (357.5mm vs 311) but would just
fit inside my current suitcase trolley
starts at 2.4kg (5.4lb) for the 9-cell model, and the 6-cell would of course be less.
Weight & physical size aside, is there anything else I have missed in comparing the two (T400 and W500)? Neither of them have these so-called LED screens correct?
Oh, the W500 has display port, but not sure how that would benefit me...
