    The 16gb RAM is self upgrade using crucial sticks. There are several posts throughout the thread despite Dell spec stated limited to 8gb. Runs better than fine with 16gb RAM. Love my Samsung 830 SSD but you pay bit more in comparative pricing to others currently.

    Just wanted to say hi.
    I've read all 327 pages.
    I know whats up.
    No questions here.
    Thought I'd share.

    I got the i7 2760qm/8gb/intel 1000/540/standard kb/1080pfhd/1tb/xfi/BRP

    paid 1200 OTD from dell.com

    Just some thoughts. I do lots of video editing/compositing so I needed the faster processor with more cache. I installed Adobe MC 5.5 in about 18 minutes from usb HD. Not too shabby. I copied 32.6 GB worth of video files at sustained 60 MB/s with bursts up to 90 from a usb 3.0 drive. I disabled all monitoring software, no fan problems here. Screen is awesome, but I haven't calibrated it yet. I will do so shortly with a spyder and see where I'm at. Gonna swap out the BlueRay for a caddy eventually and shove an SSD in the main space. I'm not a big gamer, but I figured I'll install Civ5 and jam for a minute and see how it goes. So far so good. I actually like the standard keyboard because I can't stand the lights in the dark. I know how to type and where all the keys are. Wireless card seems to be fine. No need to have super fast network speeds, only have 20 mbit hsi here and 10/100 does just fine at streaming. No bends, creaks or flex in anything.

    Just thought I'd stop in. 7 days from ordering to receiving. Happy so far, dont break please.

    Hey just wondering if anybody has modded the quickset program or the bios to allow F1-F6 to operate as function keys and F7-F12 to operate as media keys yet?

    That would be awsom and would round off the perfect laptop for me

    Does anyone even have any ideas on how to do this?

    Maybe this: How to have keyboard Multimedia and Fn keys enabled at the same time UberUllu.com
    It says:
    little Autohotkey script to remap and split the Fn-Multimedia keys so that F1 to F6 keys are “Function key first” and F7 to F12 (which I hardly ever use) are “Multimedia keys first”. So I can now use the F5 key to refresh and F7 to mute master volume, without the pesky “Fn+F7”

    Thanks a lot, I found this program before I saw your post, it allows you to remap the keys in the registry which does the same job, seems to be working so far:

    RandyRants: SharpKeys 3.5

    I just made sure that function key first is selected in quickset, then mapped F8-F12 to back, play/pause, forward, vol up and vol down.

    This program edits the registry so make a backup/create a restore point befrore you start and USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
