Hi K.Tim ---
My laptop will be shipped around the December krab. So, it might be too late for you. I got the T60p with 14 inch krab, cuz I'm concerning about the weight and it's much more cheaper krab. You might want to look at http://www.pantip.com/tech/hardware/topic/HS2229949/HS2229949.html . P'3MOG gave some reasons for making decision krab.
If I do understand the warranty system correctly. You can put the type no. under the international warranty to check the country that you can use the sevice krab at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=/warranty/warranty.vm&sitestyle=lenovo
I assume that you get the one on promotion na krab. The type no. will be "2613" (you will see after you customize your machine). if you check the international warranty for 2613, you can have service only in 4 countries krab - US, CA, JP, Korea.
** You can call them to make sure krab. **
However nobody pay the money for you if something wrong happens krab. you should make decision yourselve on those issues.
Wish you're happy and enjoyed with your new computer krab...
