So far so good- All in all I am very happy with this machine- A beast it is! I have shown it to a few ppl and they immediately comment on its size. It will definitely take up some room on a desk, and will make an impression anywhere it goes... So far, I am completely happy w the noise level- It doesn't seem to get that hot (yet) I have played about 20 min of FEAR on the thing@1024x768 and am avg 70fps or so-- I haven't done anybenchmarks yet, but may consider it...
My issues are- the black plastic cover that is above the keyboard is not flush- you can see it in one or two of the posted pics... I was sad to see it, but it is a minor cosmetic detail- All the same, we get these computers for aesthetic appeal as well, and I think that plastic buckle really sucks- is it worth a month to wait for them to fix it? Hell no. Still!!
Also, the media card reader does not want to read my compact flash card- no biggie, cuz I can plug in the entire camera, but I will deal with that issue at a later date- I still haven't popped in a dvd yet, and will jump on that right now-
Other than that , AMAZING MACHINE- I can run as many programs at once as I like, pop loads of jpegs to Pshop, click all over the place, all without a hitch-
When I have more time Ill post some better photos- screenshots, whatever... If anyone has any info on media reader, let me know!!!
