I found the same deals and even had the same questions. I've been pricing a new laptop for some upcoming titles I'm interested in. For others, here are the links I've found:
XT1: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7124324&CatId=4938
XA1: http://www.amazon.com/G73SW-XA1-Republic-Gamers-17-3-Inch-Gaming/dp/B004LRO9AK/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1304986585&sr=8-10

I may have missed something, but the only difference I was able to find:
XT1 had a blu-ray drive (Non-write) versus a DVD drive.
XA1 has a 750GB HDD versus the XT1 500GB.

Same processor. Same graphics card. Same amount of memory. If anyone else noticed any other important differences, please help us out.

You nailed it Neolicious, I may be biased since i own the XA1 model, but I'd say that its the best bang for the buck, so choose XA1, amazon has top notch CS as well. I had a problem with my first G73, they sent out a replacement right away with 1 day shipping and shipped it before I even had to send the first one back.
