    sorry guys for the late reply,

    Run1track:
    overall I like the S6210 the best. Althought the 7010's screen size is a plus, I like the size of the 6210 and the screen looks a lot better imo sidebyside, I also have a sony digital camera so the integrated memorystick reader is a bonus. I also find the CV display to create a more "even" backlighting.

    the 6210 is pretty much the 6120 upgraded. The scroll button has been updated and overall the design is better. I find wifi connection for the 7010/6210 better than the 6120's. When coming out from standby, the 6120 takes around 15-20secs to recover and find a wireless signal whereas the newer 2 are a lot faster.

    the 7010 has more of a "professional" business look. There isn't that blue LED that looks kind of cheesy (unless you like the blue led hehe)I also like the brushed aluminum part at the top where the power button is on the 6210, they did away with that on the 7010 which makes it more black and as I said earlier, professional. The scroll button on both the 7010 and the 6210 are different. I find the 7010 scroll button easier to use, but you get used to the 6210's. What I wouldn't give for a 7010 with a CV display, hopefully fujitsu will get the idea and put them in all notebooks.

    aamsel:
    I have the 7010 model, not the D. The 6120/6210 are comparable in the amount of "flex" on the keyboard if I know what "flex" you mean. The 7010's keys are somewhat different in that they don't have as much "bounce" to them, if thats what you're talking about :)

    The casing around the screen isn't flimsy at all. The most flimsy one I found was the 6120 which I had previously. It screeched and touched the LCD when you pushed to hard. Both the 6210 and 7010 have very well built casings.

    oops sorry forgot to add the 7010's casing is the most well built. Nothing creaks at all when you squeeze it or anything whereas the 6210 has a slight creak at the screen when you hold it tightly etc.

    Fireball, this may sound ridiculous, but because you have a digital camera: is there any way you can take two pictures of the computers side by side: one showing their thickness and the other showing their length and width. There is no stores that offer fujitsu where I am and I'm been relegated (?) to drawing out the dimensions on pieces of paper! (yes I obsess about little things!).[:I]

    You said your wife enjoys the thinness of the S7, is it that noticeable? Which one "feels" smaller to carry around. (I know the S6 is like .2 lbs lighter, but in reality does this carry over to a lighter notebook, given it's *slightly* thicker body?)

    Thanks for offering to help those of us who have yet to make up our minds, its greatly appreciated.

    Marianne

    I think the S7010 "feels" smaller to carry around because its thinner, I can BARELY notice the wait difference between the two...and most of the time you're carrying it in your briefcase or laptop bag so its not noticeable at all.

    You can edit your own posts...the paper and pencil icon with your post will do the trick.

    I think it's rare. That's the first time the problem has been posted here.
