yeah you'll more than often see bad posts on any laptop than good ones, just nature of it. i love my m1210, and after reformating it and setting it up just how i want it, it couldnt be perfect for now. (except for the lcd being touchy as to whether i view it from above or below.. needs to be just perfect for a good picture). all other problems with the screen not turning back on after opening the lid from closing it, keyboard flex, and poor build quality, are definitely not visible with my m1210!
i've never owned a laptop before, and i am impressed with the quality and grade of the m1210, i coudln't imagine a laptop having "weak screens and lids" where if you touched the back of the lid, the lcd would ripple. nor could i imagine a laptop with hinges which seemed fragile among many other things.
i foresee this laptop lasting a very long time, as long as the hdd or something goes out unexpectedly, just from a bad luck of the draw. im also not overclocking because i dont see the benefits of extreme more heat, more than a laptop already is hot, and straining components of the laptop which would be hard to replace. just being cautious for long term investment.
