    I have the same problem with the recovery disks. Havent managed to get it to work yet :confused: Anyone have any ideas?

    Also had a problem with blurry out of focus text. Got round it by turning cleartype off. Anyone else experienced this? Never had any problems using cleartype before (though on previous laptops I am using XP).

    Surprisingly not as much as you'd think.
    It runs surprisingly cool around the keyboards and palm rest where it counts, and much cooler than my old TravelMate 3252 (helps that the hard drive isn't under the palm rest).
    As for noise - the fan runs almost constantly to keep everything cool, but it's quiet when it does so, and only gets loud under load.

    thanks, hehe

    erm... when running applications, is it different? since the screen ration now has changed. can all the softwares run properly? more specifically... can i play counterstrike on it? will the game gets 'flattened and elongated'? or do i see more areas of the game(horizontally) compared to a normal laptop? or the screen has two black lines on the left and right side of it to make the game in a 'normal' viewing mode

    Hey, is this laptop getting a refresh soon?

    I'm thinking of going for a 16" Laptop(portable with a good size screen) and was thinking about getting this. It looks good so far.

    Also, what is the resolution, 1600 x 900? If so, how does it look compared to 1920 x 1200?

    @red_wine: Well, it depends on the resolutions supported by Counterstrike. There may be options for 16:9 resolutions like 1280x720 or your native res. Since it's running Source engine, there may even be custom resolutions you can use. Look around and see.

    Otherwise, if you're using a 4:3 or 16:10 resolution, it will get letterboxed or elongated. The choice for which you prefer can be found in your NVIDIA Control Panel.

    @Count Kaiser: A refresh? This series just came out in March! With Centrino 2dropping soon, I'm honestly not sure it'd be getting one in the near future.
    I've taken the system on the road a few times - it's kinda chunky at 7 lbs or so, but still portable-ish.
    You have two screen resolution options - 1366x768 WXGA (basically 720p) and 1920x1080 WUXGA (Full 1080p). It depends on which model you choose.

    Was that sarcastic? ;)

    EDIT: Oh, NOW I see what you did there. I meant you could choose between elongation or letterboxing, you silly silly person.

    What are the pros and cons of the 6920? No one ever made a review for it.

    it can be changed to ON by default by editing the REGISTRY...

    Does anyone have any review info on the AS6920-6508 model? I considering buying this one for my daughter who is going off to college next month. Circuit City has it on sale for $699 through the end of the day. Thanks in advance for any advise.

    check that model out too.... cheaper.. and i don't think specs are all that different...

    i alos buy alot of accessories from these guys they sell mostly refurbished units... so if you buy from them get an extended warranty!
