X20x: make sure to get a Panasonic cooling unit; Toshiba's is awful. Apart from the noise they are built differently (so easy to tell apart), the coldplate on the Panasonic is split into the actual coldplate and a silver aluminimum piece that holds it down, while on the Toshiba the coldplate is copper all the way to the screws. But you only see that if you flip the system board over.

... and at something like 1.3-1.5 kg they aren't really heavier than more modern laptops anyway, just thicker.
