Lenovo Thinkpad Reserve Edition - Worth the price?

We've finally gotten some new info on Lenovo's leather-bound ThinkPad Reserve. It's got some decent specs, but it's not what's on the inside that really makes this notebook worth it.

The notebook is powered by a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM and a 160 GB HDD. You'll also get an 80GB external drive for keeping backups. Sounds nice, but is it worth $5,000? They're going to have to throw something pretty nice in to sweeten the deal.

They have in fact thrown in 24x7 tech support over the phone. That's good, but still not $5,000 good. Fine, if that's not enough, they'll fly anywhere in the world if you're having issues with it and take care of you. Now that's customer service! I still wouldn't see myself paying that much for a laptop, even with great tech support.
