Amazing deal on this device... Possibly my number one pick if you're looking for a serious laptop right now. These prices have fallen so quickly, I'm amazed. I didn't expect to see 30% off so soon either

$1063.30 after 30% off (via RedFlagDeals) for the...

Elite ThinkPad T510 with discrete graphics: Intel Core i7-620M Processor, Windows 7 Pro, 15.6" HD AG LED, NVIDIA NVS 3100m 512MB, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 250GB 5400RPM HD, DVDRW, 9-cell Battery, ThinkPad b/g/n

I would highly suggest upgrading the display, though. The regular 15.6" HD is just 1366 x 768px, and the HD+ (1600 x 900px) is just $50 - 30%.

Reading http://www.thinkpadtoday.com/lenovo-thinkpad-t510-full-launch-review-complete-rundown-and-video.htm it is amazing how many special touches they added to the T series that aren't even covered in my review here. Check it!
