Pros: For this price it wasn't possible to find another notebook that was this well balanced. A fast Core 2 duo processor, a discrete graphics card, 4G of ram and ample HDD space. It easily handles L4D and TF2 at 1680x1050 which seems to have been a good resolution choice for a screen this size. Installing Windows 7 x64 and Linux Mint 7 x64 on it was a breeze.
Cons: The small right hand shift key takes a little bit of getting used to as do the swapped Fn/Ctrl keys, but it's a small price to pay for a full size keypad.
Other Thoughts: No keyboard flex or backlight issues on mine, the keys are nicely sized and great for typing. I was worried about the red accents, but it isn't that noticeable and the dark brushed aluminum is quite nice. Battery life is average, about what you'd expect from a notebook with these specs.
