i will get back to you on the battery life as i have just sent my battery off as i was an unlucky one to get a faulty battery
The viewing angles are pretty good compared to my previous 3 laptops and most i have ever seen.
The screen is top 1680x1050 glossy very bright with no leakage at all
it is relativly quiet but it can get hot when using high graphics games as i have overclocked the ati x1600 which gives a hell of a kick and it gets hot air coming out. But you cant really feel it on your lap as the heat does not travel trough the laptop very much just straight out the side
like it should do. also another good thing is the intake and out for the cpu are in the same place on the side so it doesnt matter if you have the laptop on your bed while playing games as you cant block the air vent easily.
The keyboard is very nice very firm but just the right amount of click so you know you have pressed the key. The touchpad is nice but the two buttons are very stiff when it is new and it was anoying for a few weeks. Also the fancy fingerprint reader inbetween the buttons is usefull for passwords. Also the fingerprint reader can be used to scroll.!!
There are two latches which holds the screen down firmly but what is nice to release them both ther is just one button hidden at the front which you push in and they both release.
any other questions ill be happy to awnser
