I just saw the Fujitsu N3530 and N6410 screens at Fry's. I had a sales guy pop in a dvd and I was stunned, it was so nice! The colors and overall experience was better than anything else they had on display (Sony, HP, etc.). Can you comment about how the v6va screen compares in overall quality to the N3530? If it is at all comparable, I think I will be purchasing the v6va. I like the styling a little more than the N3530, I like the weight a lot more, and I don't think I need a dual core laptop. I've also thought about an IBM T60 with Flexview, but I really like the styling of the v6va. (Your pictures have helped moved me closer to the v6va.)
If you or someone else reading this could let me know, I would appreciate it.
I apologize if I'm out of line by asking this in your post. If I am, feel free to tell me to bug off and start my own thread.

I have used many laptop screens including Sony X-Black on S series, Toshiba M3, IBM T series (not flexview) recently. It so impressive I say it puts even many desktop TFT's to shame... except reponse time of course. The viewing angle is amazing... I doubt the model you mentioned has a better display unless of course it also has IPS. Check this review about the screen.
Also check out their forums because there is a lot more discussion about the v6va and particuarly the screen.
I love this notebook but I have to point out a few minor cons.
* The keybaord is about average... IBM and Dell keyboards are much better.
* Touchpad is poor. I don't use it much anyway because I use either a bluetooth or usb mouse so it really doesn't matter much to me.
* Right side of palm rest does get warm but nothing too concerning. Please note AS5 is applied to both cpu and gpu. Also cpu is undervolted to reduce temps.
* Gorgeous display - Best display on a notebook?
* Design is excellent... Pictures don't do it much justice. You must have one to realise how thin and well designed this machine is.
* ATI x700 - very powerful gpu for a "thin and light" notebook.
* Very quiet fan. If you undervolt (and possibly AS5 as well) the fans never/barely comes on when doing light task such as word, surfing, email etc. Even when it does come on its so quiet...
* Nice brushed aluminium / Carbon fibre casing.
* Fairly light - Pound for pound I don't think there is a better laptop.
* 4 usb sockets.. Many thin & light notebooks I owned only had 2.
* Memory card reader - always a nice bonus
Will update more later.
