I can finally vote
I vote for "Yes, but could be better".
I'm happy to have m1210. I can't believe that this small boy is man with attitude
I was worried with the truelife but I'm surprised that it didn't bother me at all. The LCD that I have is AUO. There's no light leakage. The screen is nice. However, I haven't use m1210 in day time as it arrive late afternoon today.
I think the m1210 fans are working. The notebook is on for many hours now but there is no heat at the back or at palmrest. I remember feeling the heat in Inspiron 9400 after few hours so this m1210's fan must be working properly and maybe the sensors are doing what it has to do to send signal to the fan
I don't know whether m1210 will fail me in some way but I'll see ...
I voted for "Yes, but could be better" because the sound/speaker is not very good. I thought something is wrong with the sound card because I hear nothing when I played a video in the dvd-drive. I restarted the system but still no sound. Then I realized that the bloody creative sound setting or mixer is set by default to low settings and the the "bass" isn't enabled. I changed the settings to max then enabled the bass and there it goes.. there's sound... finally. Still the sound system in m1210 could be better but I'll install the ac3 filter
tonight to see if that will do any trick.
I like the keyboard because it's full keyboard. There's no keyboard flex. No rippling in any part of the notebook.
Camera - Not bad quality. I don't expect much because it's 1.3 mega pixel only.
My wife want my notebook. Below is the picture of m1210 set that I received today (click it to see larger image)

Update: I thought I'll just edit to update my personal thoughts on m1210
After playing with the sound settings (equalizer, bass, mixer)... the sound in m1210 improved! and must say now that it is acceptable
I didn't have to install ac3 filter. No changes with my feelings about m1210 --> I'm happy with it.
It's now daytime here and I'm loving the LCD display (my wife does too! She want it a lot!).
Another thing that is very cool is the wifi catcher. Kudos to Dell for adding it.
