I bought mine secondhand from a nice friendly little computer shop, reconditioned.

It came with a floppy drive, a cd rom drive and writer, a dvd drive and spare battery. It also came with a free carry case and a port thingy that you can just drop the laptop into; this port thingy holds connections to printer, modem, power etc.

Now while this is great, meaning every time you want to move the laptop around, you don't have to mess around with loads of wires and plugging, it is a little bit temperamental and can lead to the computer having a problem communicating with the printer etc.

However, the main thing I love about this little black number is the trackpoint feature. This is a tiny nub which sits just below the g and h keys. Its a little tricky to get used to for a short time, but let me tell you, once you get used to it, you're spoiled for any other control device. Sometimes it does drift but the tutorial is absolutely right when it says the best way of stopping this is to nudge and let go.

The location of the trackpoint means you can acheive a much more comfortable hand position when typing, as there is no need to keep moving your whole hand around, just the fingers you would normally have on the g and h keys anyway.

Other than that, the machine is light, tough (it has been dropped twice and is fine), and in sexy matt black can be taken anywhere without shame or flashiness.

Ten out of ten.
