    What would you say is the key difference between a T-series and an R-series notebook?

    Weight and build material, definitely. The R-series is still well-built, but is primarily of ABS plastic.

    So in terms of hardware both are similarly configurable? Or are there things that IBM only puts on T-series? Dedicated graphics cards? Flexview?

    I'm not sure if the R-series have FlexView, but the choices for graphics are pretty much the same as for the T-series. Lenovo just recently added the fingerprint ID as an option to the R-series.

    The R-series does have IPS (FlexView as called by IBM) screen (not on all models obviously). IMO there is nothing on the T that you can't get on the R. They even take the same 9 cell battery. In fact the R has better DVDR options because it uses a bigger modular bay.
