Perhaps it's a software issue (anyone?). Headphones sound great, though, which is my most common audio interface (Sennheiser PX-200's; ugly but sound AWESOME!)
The keyboard is kind of mushy and thin throughout, and in the two lower corners (closest to you), there's quite a bit of flex. I'm getting used to it, but as a former mechanic and general lover of precision things, it's kind of annoying. My wife's 4 year old Toshiba Satellite's keyboard is far superior, as is my friend's IBM X series. Oh, well. For the money, who cares.
Specifically more concerned with the keyboard and comfort level after long periods of typing (intermitently all day or for long, say 2 or 3 hours, periods at once).
Any other problems not mentioned here?
