A few things: 1) I love the keyboard. Perfect for a laptop. 2) I love the glossy screen, very deep colours, but I haven't tried it in high glare areas yet. 3) Intel GMA950 is better than I'd thought. Runs Civ4 with only slight chop with baseline ram. Looking forward to butter smooth performance when I install 2gigs of ram. 4) Installing a new HD is very easy, providing you have the right tools, which I didn't, so it was a nightmare and took 3 hours. Get your precision screwdrivers and Torx T-8 ready beforehand. So overall, I'm very happy. With 512mb of ram you can tell it's only scratching the surface of performance posssibilities, but all the same, even now, it's great The updates won't have a dedicated gpu, and will simply use the same GMA950, and I kno that's what you're all holding out for, so don't bother, save yourself the stress of Next Tuesdays and buy buy buy.
