    This quote has made me all that much smarter and calmer. I no longer argue with idiots. Where is this from anyways? I love it!

    It's not an ultraportable, that's for sure, but is it ever thin and light! I went from a 6.5~lbs 15.4" to this one, and I gotta say, there was a huge difference in size and mobility! Perhaps it's just me, I'm not a big guy, but I find it very portable.

    This is why I am still confused on what to buy - when spending so much all at once (and not being able to return if you dislike it....) It is scary I say!

    From a specs and build standpoint I love the V6J - but when people mention bass issues, touchpad issues, mouse button issues, etc ... makes one wonder. I don't want to spend $1900 on something that "you have to get used to"

    I'm not too worried about potential touchpad issues, since I'll be using a mouse with it most of the time anyway... that potential sound issue is a concern though, since I listen to a lot of music. That's why I'm going to inspect (and test!) the V6J before I make a decision.

    My position on the whole "touchpad buttons are hard to press" issue is that this is based on people who's V6 is only a day or two old. I imagine that once you've used it a few months, they'll either have been broken in or you'll have really muscular thumbs. ;)

    I don't see any of that as being an issue. The sound ins't a problem for me at all, sounds better than other notebooks that I have used. If you learn to adjust/use the touchpad properly, than you have no trouble with it. The button are not a big deal, press in the right spot and you don't have any trouble at all. If you learn to use your computer (very very little learning) you will have no trouble at all.
