well i ordered mine. i have alot of worries though including my initial concern that this has been out long enough that they may release a sonoma update which would include an upgraeable PCIx video card. (boy that would kill me...). But also im concerned about a few other things now that ive seen it at the dell store.
1) Keyboard - its small but ive had a small averatec and a small vaio before so i can get used to it. i tried typing and everything was okay except the period and comma keys. what were they thinking? plus, i had an ibook for 2 weeks and thats just as wide but it has a fullsize keyboard. the 700m couldve had a fullsize keyboard too if they utilized the sides instead of leaving that 1" margin.
2) screen -
maybe you guys can help me out on this because the dell demo was locked so i couldnt look at display properties. maybe they had it set up wrong?
i have perfect vision, but in trying to read the names of some files on the desktop looked tiny. i had a hard time reading some letters. plus, the icons looked a bit stretched. like the internet explorer icon wasnt a perfect circle. it was more of a slightly squashed circle.
Anyway, i got the dvd burner, 60gb hdd and extended battery so i should be okay if i can just get used to the keyboard and not notice when dell releases the 700m successor.
