To anyone interested: as pretty as those pictures are, they don't give that screen justice. It has to be seen in person to be believed. It is absolutely stunning, the best laptop panel ever IMO.

Best of luck with the sale.

I would normally get this (I already have another HP laptop with DC display so I know how awesome these are) but customs charge would probably be too much (I'm in Greece)

I am salivating over the display and firewire. Not counting customs, could you estimate shipping costs to Europe? Say Germany. Thank you.

Having shipped large packages like this before (US to EU), it's most likely about $55-$75 for shipping with USPS, which seems to be the cheapest option.

Well you can't have a better 16:10 display. I have owned this one before (two or tree times), this device is great. Note that thinkpad trackpoint can be used in this keyboard :D

Please provide us with some more details.
Bluetooth.
DVD type.
Battery health.
RAM amount (and number of RAM slots - they come with 2 or 4).
Working temperatures (I'm very interested in this one).
Too many thinkpads not enough time!
(stable under reduction)
