It think you might wanna add Winroll. It just rolls up your window with a right click, its pretty nifty!

Ah, I didnt see this post before now.
I would have made that "howto" earlier, but since WB5 is released now, and mostly everyone has it, I wont bother doing that..
Unless someone begs me to
Its quite simple actually.
Resize the wallpaper to the screen resolution, cut the bottom of the wallpaper so that it will fit the taskbar.
Use Paintshop and create a 2 layer image, by using the taskbar bitmap and add a new layer that's around 70% opacue, paste the wallpaper cut and merge these two layers.
Use a program called ResEdit to edit the msstyle, and change the taskbar bitmap to the one you made in paintshop.

I haven't played much with Konfabulator, but it offers a similar feature set to AveDesk. The advantage to Konfabulator is that there are hundreds upon hundreds of pre-made widgets available to download. The popularity of Konfabulator has increased recently since it used to be a paid-for software and is now freeware.
Warning, this link possibly bad. It redirected me to a site owned by Yahoo.

Wait for screenshots from a new 1680x1050 laptop screen though...

I personally prefer thin/light laptops for portability but this one should definitely serve you well if the display is your main attraction. And that extra battery power will certainly come in handy
Lots more details at NotebookReview.
Congrats on your purchase!

But to answer your question, I'm not sure how much more weight the 9-cell battery adds. For me, it's carried in my backpack and still weighs less than my average textbook, so I don't really mind all that much. For me, it's the full-sized keyboard, and the larger screen that does it for me. My dad's got one of the "ultra-portable" Sony laptops, and I have troubles typing on it.

I'm actually running Windows 2003 in that screenshot, since I get it free from my university, so you can see that most of this stuff works in Win2k3 as well as XP.
