Seriously, Smilepak.. you must've gotten a loaner notebook from Jesus or something, because you're like the only one out there that claims to have a perfect Z71V with no display, heat, fan, or drive issues.
I haven't had any problems with burn speed, I have one stuck pixel, but it's hardly noticable, the heat's fine, fan's fine, no buzzing on battery, no clicking from optical drive, not bothered by "sparkle", good battery life, ALS works fine, keyboard has hardly any flex. I don't think smilepak's the ONLY one...
Remember that if you have problems, you'll ask for help, but if you don't, you won't typically post several times just to say "I have no problems". I
will, but I'm just wierd that way...
