Overall impression: it's a beautiful machine. Thin, light, well made. I haven't really stress-tested it too much but after running for several hours it's still silent, as far as I can tell. It's also pretty fast whilst doing routine (i.e. Office, internet surfing) stuff and it boots virtually instantly after going to sleep. Impressive.
RE: the screen - I'm impressed. It's bright, sharp and has excellent contrast. I took some of the requested screenshots though I struggled to remove the moire. As for viewing angles - the screen seems to retain its colour definition at pretty wide angles - also shown in the screenshot. In particular what should I be looking at?
I don't have a USB DVD drive... so booting from Linux would have to be done via a flash drive. The only one I have is kind of full, so it may take me a few days to get around to this.
Thanks for the pictures. The color accuracy looks acceptable. Are the reds red or are they red-orange? I can't tell from the pics. I'm just overly cautious after buying and returning the new Envy 15 w/IPS, which had very noticeable color accuracy issues.
Hi, thanks so much for all your previews. I, too, would appreciate some more feedback about the keyboard. I returned a UX31 because of missed keystrokes. Are you finding that your typing is accurate? And, while I'm at it, is the touchpad Elan or Synaptics? I notice they have two different drivers on the website... Thanks in advance.
