Getting a new laptop!

This company rules:

I'm pysched about:

-- a lid that closes (no rubber band!)
-- external VGA (for presentations)
-- gigabit ethernet
-- 802.11 a/b/g with decent antenna (can't be worse than my old PowerBook)
-- internal bluetooth (internet access via my cellphone)
-- low-power Pentium-M
-- extra battery (which I never bought for my PowerBook)
-- hiberate support in Linux
-- 3-year hardware warranty (unlike Apple, stupid lid, grumble)

Doing the happy dance, doing the happy dance....
