Just setting it up now. First impression: Wow. The packaging alone makes it worth it This is my 6th? 7th? laptop and none of the other companies make the effort like Asus does. I am noticing some minor finish problems ( screen underneath the protector is kind of dirty ), the black plastic piece that holds the fingerprint reader is loose...but generally a very positive first five minutes Also for people in CANADA. Talk to Bloom Microtech ( www.bmtnet.com ) in Ottawa. I got the system in ONE day. Also at a very reasonable CAN$1899. They have a good price and quickly delivered on everything they promised. The website is not much to look at, but the store has been around forever...they treat customers right. For people in the US, talk to Portable One. Ivan was quite helpful in lining me up for a system but I decided to go with a local dealer. My impressions of the Portable One was first rate. More later!
