It has ARRIVED!
thanks bryan... im currently on it right now... to quote borat... very nice!
cant really do a review right now since im on my lunchbreak... 2 hour campus staff lunch break today w00t... but i will work on a review as soon as i can get my hands on a camera... decided i could not wait patiently enough to take pictures of it arriving still in the box... so ill prolly just cheat and pack it up again
as for the actual lappy... it is beautiful... understatement of the year... good solid design, actual blue is darker than pictures... a lot darker
no cosmetic flaws on it... dont think there are any dead or stuck pixels either... sum it up real quick with a pros and cons list
keyboard design is going to take some getting used to... used to ctrl key on very bottom left and wider shift and backspace key... also used to just hitting enter all the way on the far right in the middle... hit the 6 key and + key instead
lid is kind of flimsy... when i say kind of i mean it wobbles when on a wobbly surface more so than other computers... put it on a sturdy surface and its golden...
beautiful paint job
the rubber legs are raised pretty high to allow for maximum air flow
a plastic "sd card" could have been put in the slot to protect from foreign objects entering the card reader
lappy is kind of top heavy in that you have to hold the bottom down to open the lid
better keyboard design/layout
otherwise, it pretty much exceeds expectations... i will write a review later, not that it would matter since they're sold out, but it'll be a nice lil project to do...
oh btw... for the benchmark people... ill give you the out of the box number since i see benchmarks as just qualitative numbers... doesnt really do a good job representing all capabilities
... out of box 3dmark06 is 3239 bm
with that i will now go play with my baby around s'more
