After you've had a chance to use it awhile, I would be interested to see how your findings compare with mine at:
After 7 full days of testing with XP and Windows 7, I don't think I can deal with:
1. Touchpad (maybe new drivers will be developed to disable sensitivity around the "buttons," change touchpad sensitivity beyond the palm-check sensitivity, add one finger vertical scroll area and other things, but for now it keeps jumping around even with most of the gestures disabled). I have accidentally moved or deleted more files than I'd care to admit because the pointer jumps just as you click a button.
2. SD cards stick out half-way, essentially eliminating the option for Readyboost to help the crippled 1 GB RAM.
3. Sluggishness due to the 1 GB RAM. It won't play HD video with Aero enabled and even has a hard time playing any video.
Other than that, its a VERY nice, well-built computer; the screen and keyboard are fantastic. It will be a tough decision and 14 more days to decide, BUT.... I think its going back. Probably why there are tons of them on the Outlet "Previously Ordered New."
