This was front page last time around. About a few weeks ago.
Not sure if it was the same model, but the specs seem the same
Ridiculous how a laptop this light can still pack a lot of power and an optical drive.
It trumps the macbook pro 13 in every hardware aspect
Not bad for those who really need an optical drive. Honestly, with USB-powered flash drives and hard drives, I don't see the point of having it, but to each his own.
Yea, i get the feeling this is going to be a really bad purchase considering all the ultrabooks that are going to start coming out. optical media is a dying breed. but it's so shiny and new
and at that weight, it's so light that it doesn't even matter. i've never seen anything this light cram an optical drive into the chassis as well
Look at the reviews for it though. They all seem to point the bad build quality on this thing, and one of the sites posted in the wiki for the screen looks awful. I would wait for the new ultrabooks if you're not in a hurry since Ivy Bridge processors are also coming out soon along with Windows 8.
I ordered this from B&H. The laptop is really a "paper tiger." It sounds great, and the people that are really harsh on it should move on, but it's not as amazing as it appears spec wise.
The fans don't really ever get that loud during just basic usage (I updated bios out of the package).
The screen is better than usual, but not as amazing as some other high-res screens I have seen.
The trackpad is terrible, possible the worst since HP tried to mimic the macbook no 2 finger scrolling and the pinch to zoom never worked correctly (ALPS).
The casing is thin, but so thin in some areas (the screen) if you run your finger across it not thinking it scratches you.
All in all, its really speced out nice, but the trackpad was so awful, I sold mine on eBay and took a loss!
Take this review as you'd like, I think its still a value, and I would've kept it had the trackpad functioned properly...
