HI Packer445 (Doug),
I would like to say thank you for your excellant review, i think it's the best yet for the M15X.
It makes me even more sure about getting the M17X, looking at the build quality that shows in your pictures, there's no "Oops you got the inferior parts" like Dell seems to do on the XPS 1730.
Just one question :- Will you be doing some benchmarks and Vista useability scoring?
Once i get home i will slip the bottom off. I ordered it originally with 2 gigs of ram but i bought a 4 gig set that im gonna install. Also i will do some vista tests. If there any specific benchmarks you want let me know. I already have one set up in my review.
