I got extremely busy with work and only now have time to post. I have had more time to play with the computer and so I think I could write a little more accurately anyways.
First of all, the display truly is that good. Excellent clarity, brightness, and the high gloss finish of the XBRITE. One very nice thing is the infinite amounts of brightness one can set. On my dell 8100 it didn't have but more than five different levels and they really didn't very that much. This goes from "in a dark room, dim setting" to "I can't see a damn thing because the sun is shining on my monitor, extra bright setting".
The keyboard some pretty good. One thing that I do not like is that the length of the space key is shortened a bit and I sometimes do not depress it enough to enter a space because of its length.
An extra cool feature would be the USB on the front of the laptop. It actually is hidden in a little slot with a removable slug so that someone can put a BT dongle or other similar device in there without it getting bumped because of sticking out. It actually sits about an inch and a half inside the from of the laptop.
Wi-Fi was a snap. I am using the supplied Intel software. As soon as I got my WEP key filled in, I was connected. There is also a quick disconnect Fn+F2
Sound is a little more quiet than I would like with PowerDVD even when set on noisy environment but it is very clear sounding.
Status lights along the right hand side give HD Status, Wi-Fi Status, Num Lock, Scl Lock, and maybe one more thing.
One interesting button is the 'P' by the power button. In the manual it says it is either used for Windows Silent Mode or Power Cinema mode under linux. Somehow I got the light to turn on once but I haven't been able to duplicate it since then. Can anyone tell me what Silent moded is and what Power Cinema is? It came with a Power Cinema disc, I just dont know what to do with it.
Well, if people want more pictures, I will PM Trinistand on Friday morning as he offered to host them if I take them.
Overall I am very satisfied.
