I'll agree with everything Tommi has said so far, although I wonder if the "grainy" look to the screen he is describing is inherent in all LCD's as I don't find it to look any different than all the other screens I've seen in the last month of research.
My screen had a couple spots with a slightly gummy substance was stuck to it, perhaps a type of glue used in the lcd manufacture or install process. It came off after very carefully and lightly wiping it with a camera lens cloth. A little disappointing considering it's an HP. The other niggly thing is my battery doesn't seat perfectly tight. At the #1 battery latch there is perhaps 1-1.5mm of play allowing the battery to shift slightly. I've noticed the casing around the DVD/CD-RW is very thin and is the only place so far where I've found the case to flex significantly. To be expected giving the thinness of this notebook, but something to be aware of when picking it up or moving it.
The glossy screens I've seen lately definitley have a wider viewing angle and seem to allow the screen to be backlit more evenly, although I don't think the trade-off screen glare is acceptable for professional use.
I ran Super-Pi and the 2M test finished in 1m 39s right out of the box, and that's without my second stick of 512mb ram in yet. My desktop P4 2.4ghz overclocked to 2.9ghz with a gig of ram dual channel finished in 1m 59s, so I'm definitely happy with the 1.86ghz mobile.
Keyboard is fantastic. It's solid, doesn't rattle and has a nice amount of key travel. The trackpoint "eraser" device is cool, although takes a little getting used to and needs some setup for personal tastes. The touchpad is fine, not much different than most others I've played with, although I haven't got scrolling working as consistent as I'd like.
It got a little warm after popping a DVD in, but nothing to be concerned about. It's very quiet on battery, and even plugged into AC it doesn't have very noticable fan noise.
That's it for now till I get some real software loaded and stress test it. So far it looks to be solidly built. I'll try to get some pic's posted soon.
