Is the hdmi 1.4b a typo? I expected 2.0 by now. Really a great deal that one. Nice find.

I know you said there probably wasn't any room to up the budget, but this looks like a smoking hot deal @ $680 + tax....

Thanks for that! Looks like they are coming up temp unavailable now... and when I follow the RFD links I am getting Intel versions, not AMD...?

EDIT: I think I might have found it by roaming around a bit more.

Reporting out of stock, at least for the 14", when you get to checkout. Bummer.

Ah well, pity.

If you're still shopping, it's well worth keeping an eye on RFD to see if any more deals show up.

There's another person now I'm also looking for, bit higher budget, but that 15" version, I think, only has a TN panel. I know how we generally feel about TN monitors, but any opinion on them in laptops; should I consider that an automatic no-go?

The old laptop this other person is currently using would likely only have a TN panel now so they likely wouldn't notice the difference.

I would say TN panels vary by brand/laptop, so hard to say "yes" or "no". Likely good enough for most though as generally you're sitting directly in front of the screen, so off-angle viewing angles aren't typically an issue.
