    Woo Hoo :D

    I've been seeing a lot of new low-priced W8's on the Flea this week, even bid on one at $600. But it went higher (thank goodness) so instead I jumped on this deal for $402 OTD.

    Panasonic must be dumping them -- end of life? -- so all the FleaBay sellers are capitalizing on the drop.


    (Hope I don't see one in a few weeks for $300 and kick myself .... :rolleyes: )

    Yes but when you buy it from Panasonic you know it's new and the warranty is good, worth the extra $104.00 to me

    Looks like a great deal! Hope they all ship? Seems like they are going to sell out a HUGE inventory fast. Has anyone installed WINDOWS 7 Pro or Home 64 bit on the W8? Any problems with install, drivers? And does any one know the MAX memory configuration for this? How many slots? Is it just 1x4GB sodimm 200 pin and at what speed? Think I'll pick one up for the wife to carry in her crazy bag, but she needs to have the memory maxed out and win 7 installed.

    Does anyone here knows the W8 screen brightness? This seems to be the only thing holding me back to replace my 2530p with this. My 52 is too heavy to take it everywhere. If this is not bright enough I may have to wait a sale in the 74 discontinued model (still on sale in the US).

    The average brightness was around 150 cd/m2 but mostly brighter in the center. I get the feeling the screen isn't all that. Still I broke down and tried to order one. If I get it, it will replace my netbook which will be sold. If I don't get it, oh well, I didn't need it.

    they seem to be US Army orders that got cancelled but never opened.

    they all have a non removeable decal covering up the panny logo.
