My machine got delivered.
I missed the FedEx guy on Monday morning.
Signed for a drop-off, in case I missed him on Tuesday.
The dv9000 came through shipping in great shape.
Comparing the dv9000 to my old Sony Vaio:
General: Looks very good, the shiny plastic lid does show fingerprints. The lid latch is not as nice as the Sony, no issues with the touch pad.
LCD: Very nice LCD 1680x1050, no dead pixels, great viewing angles, very good color, contrast, text was a little small so I bumped it up to 120dpi.
Keyboard: Good feel, I like it, the number pad is great for me, the general layout and certain keys are going to be a learning thing.
Wireless: Wireless setup went smooth for wireless router and wireless print server. It does not seem to get as good reception as the Netgear card did on my Sony Vaio.
Software: I have not really had time to delete the stuff I don't want and install my stuff yet.
