My last notebook was 6 years ago , a Dell Inspiron 5000 a med-high level machine , plastic and flexible
I was lucky to get the M140 on its way at a price consistent with the used market $700-800, for
notebooks that are several years old. For $800 got an extra bigger battery and some software I wanted.
Am using the notebook case/bag that I had for my previous 14" screen.
The M140 is plastic,tight(non flexible) and as bullet proof as plastic can provide, I'm a happy camper in this regard.
I was a bit flumoxxed about the screen brightness and the perpetual grey haze of the screen till
I ran across the non-Dell video driver for this which solved all my concerns.
As to another post regarding the two little speaker holes that still had adhesive in them,
can you say CLASS ACTION SUIT
