    They should be the same, but the BB version only has 1 year warranty from ASUS instead of 2, and the BB version does NOT include the bonus accessories, mainly the Targus Backpack and the Logitech Mouse.

    The BB one is cheaper b/c it is running a slower processor. Sorry for the short answer-I am typing this on my PSP

    Yea the BB one is .2 Ghz slower. Personally I would get the newegg over the BB one. Only 50 bucks.

    X1 and A1 differ in screen resolution as well.

    Well, the reason I'm looking at the BB version is that I can get them to open the box so I can look for dead pixels first and make sure there are no damages. Plus there is the no shipping hassle (2 stores have it near me), so I can get my hands on them instantly.

    The .2 GHz won't make that much of a difference, will they?

    ASUS has a 30 day pixel guarantee, so that isn't much of a factor in my opinion.

    The BB version doesn't mention HDMI, eSATA or DVI but I assume its included.

    Heh, but it'll be a 1 year warranty from ASUS, 1 year so BB can sell you a PSP/PRP for some $$$ :D
