How is dvd playback? Is it smooth or are there any slight issues with it. It's not a deal breaker if there are slight issues (assuming they are slight), but it would be nice to know in advance.
It would be nice if the keyboard was more thinkpad-like, but I can deal with that. The trackpad is a non issue since I always use a mouse when I'm at the desktop.
The screen is at least comparable if not better, since there have been retailers who are convinced that this is the best screen out there. If it is a derivative of the fujitsu ACEview, it's possible that it may be more refined. There is no issue with response times, and there's no ghosting whatsoever. I think whoever mentioned the response time was referring to that in comparison to a desktop LCD, in which case, of course, the LCD has a faster response time, though the IPS screen's response time is by no means substandard. DVDs play very well, i've tried a couple using both WMP and nero showtime.
The keyboard once again doesn't exactly give the same tactile feedback as a thinkpad's, but if you get used to it, it's of about the same quality, solid and clean. I'm still trying to get used to the touchpad buttons, but the pad itself works well. I think the issue is that the buttons are part of the same piece of metal that frames the pad, so pressing down near the top of the buttons doesn't work.
