The W540 appears not to be available in Canada and would probably bust my budget by quite a bit if ordered with that high resolution screen... Yet, the W530 still looks like an appealing option if I can convince the banker.
Good luck with that. Tell her if you add the 2-year accidental protection, it'll last at _least_ 2 years, probably a lot longer. I only had to use that accidental warranty once in the 2-years I bought it for, and that was only because I was a bit stupid and ended up scratching the screen. Like, 2 weeks before the end of the warranty. I got lucky, but if I hadn't scratched it, I'd never have noticed that it was going to expire. It's still going really strong! No hardware problems at all.
