Installing the 8gb RAM was a breeze. I haven't really done anything with it yet, but it boots up and shuts down very quickly.
Screen seems nice, but to be honest I'm not sure I can tell the difference with the IPS screen.
Windows 7 is going to take a bit of getting used to.
I don't like the trackpad - it's not sensitive enough and is textured - the one I'm used to is smooth so it feels weird. I assume there is a setting that I can adjust the sensitivity. I ordered the Logitech Anywhere MX mouse after a trip to best buy to play with the mice. It had good reviews and felt good in my hand. Battery life seems to be a bit of an issue, but only for some people. The microsoft one I linked to above is not that cool in person.
Battery charged VERY quickly.
I have no idea how to update the drivers, even with a google search. Can anyone help?
Glad to hear it arrived!
I hate the trackpad on mine too, you can adjust the sensitivity if you like, but I just use the track point "eraser nub".
To update the drives, click the blue tool kit button on the bottom right hand of the screen, down near the clock, battery meter, and wireless strength. From there you should be able to update all your drivers. Click on the big box at the top that says system health, then find the button that says " Latest software and driver updates".
You should notice a difference in things like sound, wireless, and probably the trackpad after you do.
There are many other useful tools and bits of information in that blue tool kit, try poking around in there.
'err, I just checked the tool kit utility. I guess there must have been an update since I last looked at it. everything has moved around, but the driver update function you need is still there somewhereEdited by Bentech - 7/31/11 at 11:21am
