Yeah, I'm thinking Dell has figured out a way to embed crack on those mini keyboards . I just ordered up a chalkboard with touchscreen and I can't wait to play with it! Two whole RAM slots AND a fan?!?!? I'm in heaven and I don't even have it in hand .

I replaced my 10v with a 2100 and really like it. For one thing, it has dedicated page up/page down keys -- pretty much a requirement for my work. And then, of course, all the points you make .

My main complaint with it is that is weighs about 2/3rds to 1 pound heavier than the 10v. But I have gotten used to it and, in terms of net pluses, it is easily ignored.

I got mine from the outlet before november, and did what others did, went to the online registration for windows 7 fulfillment and they sent me a win 7 pro upgrade disk 1week later, free of charge.

I got mine yesterday....probably won't try the upgrade (hopefully more of a fresh install) until sometime during the upcoming long weekend.
Just curious....what does the Dell UPGRADE ASSISTANT DVD do? It looks like it contains drivers and such, but instructions say to run it before the Windows 7 install. Plus my 2100 has the XP Home downgrade installed.
Could be an interesting project between deep-fried Turkey and Football games! ;-)
