I like the styling of TR2/3 but the price of P5020D is attractive. The
P5020D with 802.11g is $200 more than the one without any WIFI and $150 more
than 802.11b. I am not interested in 802.11b so I wonder if I add an
external WIFI PC card, would I drain the battery a lot quicker? And does the
add-on WIFI harder to use than a built-in one? Also, what's the difference
between TR2 & 3. I notice that TR3 now comes with 902.11g. What other
differences?

Nevermind, the price difference between P5020 (802.11b) & P5020D (802.11g)
is nil. I was confused by the ones without optical drives. I just notice
that the Fujistu has optical audio out. Well done! The TR3 is way too
expensive although it's half a pound lighter and sexier. I think I am going
to get the P5020D. I do wonder about the screen quality between Fujistu's
and Sony's XBrite.
