The main thing is that the computer is really fast and that the screen has good colors, no dead pixels, and no ghosting. The processor feels fast and furious, as does the graphics card. It speeds up my working a lot, compared to the my desktop I was working with (Athlon 1800+, ATI 9550, 1 GB). I can't compare it to my brother's nw8000 at the moment, but my feeling is that the greatest difference is that the graphics system, which is 2.5 x faster on nw8240. However, the fans of nw8000 are sometimes off, which they don't do on nw8240. The keyboard is nice, very good to type on. So far I'm growing to like the computer more and more.
I have yet to run a battery life test.
And btw, heat is no problem. The casing doesn't heat much at all, but air around the keyboard might get little warm after 3D work, but nothing serious. It appears to have very good heat management. Nothing like Acer TM 800, that I had a year ago, which you could use to burn your left palm.
