Default What the 10v is REALLY missing.. - 09-14-2009, 04:59 AM

HD activity light.
USB/SD activity lights.
WIFI activity light.

I think I'm going to make it a project to install some tiny LEDs on the round edge under the screen to show read/write to external devices + the HD.


10v SL 10.6.1 + Win 7 ENT Dual Boot | A06 to A04 BIOS | 2 GB Crucial RAM | 64 GB OCZ Vertex SSD | BlueTooth enabled and working | Sleep working (lid close/open) | Restart NOT working

Yep, back-lit keyboard for me. Not at all bothered about HDD activity light, I've got an SSD so it just works.
