1) Model of USB floppy drive used

3) Anyone else experiencing a "Detecting Hard Drives" message during boot (has a rotating cursor underneath and lasts for about 35-45 seconds before hard drive is found)? This occured after I set the RAID dip switches to "OFF."

Also the rear USB ports were installed upside down. Not a biggie but disconcerting when you have to remember to flip the connection over when connecting a USB device. (The side USB port was installed correctly. The palm rest DOES get quite warm which I was aware of but didn't realize that it was annoying compared to my Toshiba.) I will say that I was really impressed with the screen, (better than the Toshiba) the keypad and the speed of the computer. But unfortunately, the quality and feel of the notebook wasn't up there with Toshiba or Sony. The screen lid was kind of flimsy and I wish there was a USB port on the right side to hook a mouse up to. The speakers were - well... mediocre standard laptop speakers. I am returning it for a refund. I think a $3500 notebook should feel and operate like a $3500 notebook. Anyone have these same problems?
