Aside from the bootloader deal and LTE, is this really an upgrade for me?
Performance wise, it walks all over anything that's out now. The only concerns to me are reception and battery life.

I'm selling my X to my Dad and getting TBolt lol
Yeah, the 2nd gen processor is huge, they are both 1Ghz, but architecture is a huge deal. I remember reading a comparison of a 2ghz Pentium 4 vs a single core, Core 2 1.2Ghz processor. The P4 did a Pi calculation in 4 minutes, and the Core 2 did it in 2 minutes.
So in a nutshell, the newer architecture at almost half of the clock speed, was twice as powerful.
Good bye MOTO
If you don't care about the boot loader on your Droid X, then don't bother. The Thunderbolt is great, but not worth using an upgrade for. I'd say just wait a bit.
But if the boot loader is a big deal to you, then I suppose you should just upgrade then.
