  1. I love the design and its ability to receive a signal from a wireless g router is amazing. No one can ever get the signal from my router on the other side of the house in my room. The signal is frequently weak on my Sony PS3, but for some reason, this laptop gets 4/5 bars all the time.

    The computer is fast and runs smoothly. It does come with some stuff you don’t need that slows it down (bloatware), but you can easily remove it. Windows VISTA does get a little annoying with the security – it constantly asks my persmission for everything!!! I’m sure you can disable this, I just haven’t looked around enough yet.

    I was concerned about having it shipped from Amazon, but it turned out to be excellent. I chose free shipping and the computer arrived two days from when I ordered it. I ordered it Tuesday afternoon and it arrived in perfect condition on Thursday via UPS.

    The screen is sharp and vibrant. The camera works very well and the battery lasts about as long as anything else you’ll get out there.

  2. I’ve had this laptop approx 2 weeks. I first saw it over Christmas and the design attracted me immediately. I was wary of switching to Vista but so far I haven’t had any complaints. For those who can’t find how to turn off the those “request permission to access this program” prompts, I found the option to turn it off somehwere in the depths of User accounts/Parent controls, I’m at work right now so the exact location eludes me. I haven’t tried out the camera yet (I’m on 12 hour days, no way i’m going to get a cute picture of myself lol).

    Going from a 15.4 to a 14.1 feels weird, I’m used to splaying my fingers out on the keyboard, which in the first few days was a bit maddening since I kept hitting the quickplay/dvd buttons. I love the remote although i’ve felt it was a bit picky about my media player, Media Monkey or iTunes, sometimes the remote will control it, other times not. The same goes for the skip/backwards/etc buttons. Also the placement of PG UP/PG DN/DELETE and so on is a taking some getting used to.

    Still trying to weed out the bloatware but I had less than 35 gigs on my last laptop to transfer so i’m not hurting for space anytime soon.

    Only slight complaints I have are about the wireless switch and the quickplay/dvd button. The wireless switch should definitely click into place. I often use it while in bed or sprawled out on the couch and I’ve gotten disconnected and didn’t even know…it’s quite flimsy. There should be a way to disable the quickplay/dvd button’s or change it’s sensitivity (unless I haven’t found it yet). I’m sure over time I’ll notice it less and less.

    Overall, I love it because it’s light which is great because I travel a lot for work, plenty of space for my music/movies, the design is loverly and fashionable (I was quite sick of black/white/gray), the media options, sound and clarity. I’m sure I’ll think of more things that i love but those are the ones off the top of my head.
