I don't know if you are still monitoring this thread, but I have a few questions. Your review and pictures have pretty much convinced me to choose the CL56 over the ECS G556e. (However, I do like the silver) I found the CL56 at MWAVE.com where you can get a Dothan 1.7, 40GB 5400RPM, 512MB, ATI M11, Intel 2200BG, and CDRW/DVD Combo for $1425 shipped.
1. What is the story behind your avatar?
2. Does your CL56 have external volume control buttons? What about external wireless button?
3. Would you get another one? If not, what would you get?
Thanks a lot.
