Actually, I'm a fan of the strip. A lot of people have said the CL56 looks better in person and I have to agree. I think it looks very slick and prifessional, and the brushed aluminum adds a nice flair andsome good definition to the kayboard.My unpainted CL56 looks better than that FragBook IMHO.
And Forengi: you WON'T be dissapointed. The wait is totally worth it. I have aflawless machine that has chewed up and spit out everything I've thrown at it, and is hungering for more.
I'm thinking about replacing the hypersonic badge though. The managed to put it on crooked.
