    My 80GB intel soda creek drive arrived yesterday afternoon, and I'm in the process of a clean install of Win7 Ultimate. So far, so good - this thing is fast. My WinSAT scores:
    CPU: 5.6, RAM: 5.6, Desktop gfx: 3.3, Gaming gfx: 4.7, SSD: 7.6
    (all subscores out of a possible 7.9)

    the latest modification thoughts I've been having concern adding a second Battery wired in Parallel with the original, and heating up the back Panel and moulding it to accommodate the larger Battery pack. I think it will add perhaps 1cm to the overall thickness. It will probably prevent me from using the folio case though...

    I do not understand why ASUS put a small 34whr battery..I just got an ACER with 6 cells that is is 44whr. the new ipad gas 25whr insuch a thin case.

    I hope ASUS will have bigger battery of the same dimensions in their accessories shop.

    I wonder if anyone has taken the time to measure the dimensions of the Battery pack yet?
