GOT IT!!! I kept checking the Fed Ex site and followed the progression and it all worked out because the site said it was on the truck for delivery, just when they said it would be, and at my door at 8 am yesterday!!! Perfect!!! OK--so, I will post pix at a later date, but here is what I have to say, so far:
I still cannot understand how a 4 pound laptop arrives as a 30 pound package, but it does!
Xeno gray is a HOT color! Much better than expected!
Sentia is nice and small and looks great.
Screen ROCKS! Nice and clear and crisp. No dead pixels.
A little slow on the initial boot, but better the second time, which leads me to my one and only GLITCH: for some reason the thing died momentarily as I was finishing loading MS works. No explanation. But once I re-booted, all was well.
None of the AOL crap you find on other new laptops, no extraneous software, but I kinda missed that, too.
Fast Fast Fast! Very nice!
All the paperwork, discs, cords, were there, nothing missing except the 'benchmarks'. I called and they said benchmarks do not come with the Sentia. I pointed out that their website says otherwise. Benchmarks are now on their way to me. I know it;s a small thing, but I am a stickler for wanting EVERYTHING you say I am gonna get!!!
I am just a tiny bit disappointed that my CF card from my Canon Elph does not fit the card reader -- but I guess that means it is time for a new digital camera
Light weight--very nice!
Haven't had the opportunity to try the wireless yet--don't have it at home.
DVD works great.
Will post more later--gotta go to work!!
