    Post whatever comments you'd like!

    Give him a break... the 2 and the 3 key are adjacent to one another :D

    Mine weighs about the same (considering it's pretty much the same chassis)... 5.7-6 lbs

    Nope, not a typo. There is PC4300 and PC4200, and mind has 4300...I'm not sure of the difference exactly.

    Oh, yeah my notebook weighs in at 7.5lb ;)
