This is just the first of what will hopefully be many segments of my 5680 review, regarding my first impressions. The packaging was exactly identical to the way everyone ele's looked. I'm sorry I don't have a camera, but there are several other reviews showing what a 5670/80 look like coming out of the box, and I assure you, they are quite accurate. Anyway, I'm transferring stuff from my old counting machine to this one right now, so I don't have any games as of yet. One thing I thought was cool was the keyboard. I've heard a few complaints about it, but so far it has shown itself to be really nice. I do have one dead pixel that I found only after searching for it. It's a dead one, not hot, so it's black, and its on the middle right part of the screen, if you were to divide it into a pound sign. It doesn't really bother me, as my background is always black anyway. Hmm, that's pretty much it for now, I'm glad I ordered the 7200 rpm drive because everything pops up faster than my pallie's 8887, with a 5400 drive. The little bit of lag, I suppose isn't that noticable, but it always bothered me. I'm off to switch the fn key with the cntrl key, i'll be back with the next segment later.
