Perfection (update)

MSI Laptop X370-062US AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.6GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6310 13.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
MSI Laptop X370-062US AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.6GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6310 13.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: It's everything I wanted -Very Thin & Lightweight without compromising screen/kbd size -Long battery life (running ~4 hours, still has 1.5 left, on 90% charge, max screen brightness) -Touchpad has a nice texture (not glossy and resistive) -Screen is very bright. Finally able to work on my bright, Florida patio -Keyboard style and size are fitting

Cons: None anymore (see other thoughts)

Overall Review: The touchpad behavior can be tweaked to function as expected/desired. In Control Panel > Mouse Properties dialog > Finger Sensing Pad tab > click Configure (you can use the systray icon if you kept it) Gestures > Applications > choose Default (I just deleted all the others to prevent conflict) > click Modify Scroll down to select: Gesture SP1 (two-finger up) Change function to: Simulate Mouse Wheel / Roll Up / no other boxes checked Scroll down to select: Gesture SP5 (two-finger down) Change function to: Simulate Mouse Wheel / Roll Down / no other boxes checked Repeat the steps for all other gestures as desired. For instance, I used two-finger left as Alt+LeftArrow, two-finger right as Alt+RightArrow. This enabled back/forward behavior in a browser. It seems kind of foolish for the software to default to the very odd scrolling behavior. However, once corrected, it works like a charm and offers a lot of functionality through the customizations.

Most Critical Review

Cheap plastic case

Patriot Xporter XT Boost 32GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PEF32GUSB
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 32GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PEF32GUSB

Pros: 32GB, good speeds

Cons: The case is plastic under the rubber. I'm talking all plastic, not metal support. Just plastic and wafer board. Yep. Oh, and it's VERY bulky, not nice going on a key-ring.

Perfection...almost

Cons: Only con so far is the touchpad software. The scrolling a multitouch features are buggy and unresponsive 95% of the time.

cheap and uncomfortable

Pros: Coming short of ideas. The hand conformity is a good concept but poorly executed here

Cons: cheap feel jumpy movement buttons hard to press which causes you to also move the ball scroll wheel is in a horrible position generally not designed well

Overall Review: Compared this to a Kensington and it lost by far
