It's a nice-looking girl, but not a sexy-looking girl, if you know what I mean.
That gray is just so drab, I don't care how shiny the plastic makes it look...I mean, come on, gray???? I'd rather have just plain white or plain black -- but gray????????
The rounded corners are a definitely turn-on, though!
I think there's too much plastic on the lid, on the LCD-side...kinda like black bars on a 4:3 TV (letterbox)...they should have done something with that space.
I still prefer the more streamlined look of the V6V, and very much envy that half-inch difference in thickness -- and even the weight, though a pound is only a typical loaf of bread and, as smilepak's pointed out elsewhere, not noticeable in a backpack, which is how I like to tote my notebook around.
Interesting that it comes in what looks like ASUS' standard box, unlike the V6V.
Yep, I guess I'm getting a Z71V, too! Can't beat the features-price equation. I'm just waiting on Sonoma to take advantage of dual-channel DDRII/533 -- no sense in having a bottleneck like that with new technology!
