Consumer review by:

Not without its flaws, but well thought out

 

A beautiful user interface built into the laptop housing.

For some reason they decided to put two USB ports and the audio in/outs low on the right side of the housing where any wires sometimes interfere with my mouse hand.

Speed, quality, security , SD & CF Card readers, 3 USB, 1GB ethernet, Firewire (1394)

No BT, no DVI out, only 802.11g WiFi.

Consumer review by:

True Mobile Workstation with Power for Media and More

 

Fast processor, great display, option for fast 7200 RPM SATA drive, firewire

Could be a tad lighter, headphone output is just as bad as all other laptops
