The early 240 machines were supposed NOT to get such great battery life..
the external battery is, external..
i have not seen a 240 in the flesh, so i can't really comment, but i think it'll be a nice little machine..
IF you can work around the 2 hour or less battery life that has been reported by the early testers of this
BTW: they have been selling for around $100, give or take $200
the warranty thing is an extended warranty, over and above the standare one year on this machine..
well worth the $$, IMO.. :-)
i've never sold one of those so i'm not fully up on it..
