Does anyone know if low stock means they still have a few left, the online stock is accurate, and the workers just lie to you so they can get their hands on the item?
low stock can mean anything. i went to check one time when they had low stock and they didn't have anything left. sometimes it could be a floor model or return. another time i was able to get it even though it was low stock so it is still worth a look if you really want it.

After using the 11inch for 2 hours now (studying on it currently) my biggest concern about this laptop beside battery life is color contrast, just can't seem to get it perfectly how I want it and the connector for power plug (from cord to laptop) seems VERY flimsy. I can see this not working in 6 months. Just my 2 cents. Hope it helps someone.
Noticed the color and power plug issues. Be gentle on the hinges as well.

The quickstart guide with the 15" sucks. Do I have to plug it in for a while before I power up? Or am I supposed to use the existing battery charge? Or does it even matter?

I was at the store and showed the guy that it was low stock. He said the same thing - it shows as low stock because there is a demo model. But I wondered if I can't buy the demo model, then it's practically out of stock.

I had the chance to grab one in-store since I live close to Staples but I didn't go out of my way to grab it. I was on my way to work and already have a Dell XPS i7 laptop anyways.

Anyways, I didn't really plan to get either laptop since I'm only truly interested in a Windows 7 tab or ASUS Transformer 2. We'll see on BF/Cyber Monday.

the 11" is very fast and silent. faster than my latitude with the i5. i am extremely happy, its so light and portable. a bigger battery means more weight and volume.

There is just more wiggle room than I would like it to be. Considering this is my travel laptop for school, I would've liked something more solid in connection where I don't have to be afraid of RMA'ing. It could just be me being paranoid. Could someone input opinions?

Edit: Here is a video of what i'm talking about: http://youtu.be/rIDuUYZzJ8s
I have a 2-year-old HP and 4-year-old Toshiba that have been the same way since day 1. My new new 15.6-inch Samsung that I bought because of this thread also has the same "wiggle". I haven't taken one apart to confirm, but my theory is that they're designed to do this. Why?? Because power connectors broken off the motherboard used to be one of the main failure modes of laptops. Using a floating jack allows the plug to hit against the side of the opening in the case before it breaks the jack off of the board. Smilie

Bottom line? Don't worry about it. Smilie

Thats really stupid excuse about "low stock" definition.

And isn't true either.

If it were true... then when it says "out of stock" it would mean they do not have a display model either.... which isn't case.

So dumb employees trying to give you a reason as to why their online inventory checker is inaccurate.
Don't believe them.

When I asked about their store showing "in stock" less then 1 hour ago. The dumb employee i talked to just told me "OHHH NEVER GO BY THE ONLINE INVENTORY LEVELS" while laughing about it....

Seems like you should be able to turn the 11.6" into a Hackbook Air. Specs seem similar.
