I feel your pain. The only two things I don't like about my 3790 is the sound and the weak plastic behind the screen. Everything else works as advertised.... bluetooth, wireless, nice screen, dvd's, games, etc. I don't think it gets too hot and I'm left handed. But I wish the plastic behind the screen was a little stronger. Too much weight on the square sager emblem and snap! (maybe). I can still return mine. If I keep it I'll definately get a sound card and some portable speakers... That means having a usb hub also because you might not have access to the 2 usb ports below the pcmcia slot. I have a large shinza sleeve but I'm still looking for a decent backpack for it.
