    The screen is GREAT. The screen viewing angles are amazing as you can see in the pictures. The screen itself is the BEST LED I have ever used. It beats the G73, Alienware M15x, and Dell inspiron 1545. The screen is VERY bright and perfectly fine for a classroom or outside on the bench. It is no RGB LED which I owned on the Alienware M17x R-2 but I think this one is better since it doesn't burn my retinas.

    I have owned a MacBook 13 inch and an Asus G73 and i have found chiclet keyboards to be nice but it varies greatly on the quality of the keyboard. I have to say this Clevo W870CU keyboard is sturdy and has no flex from typing. All the keys are responsive and perfectly spaced. I find myself never having to glance down to find a key because my finger slipped. The only thing that could make this keyboard better would be a backlight keyboard. Also a non-trucated number pad would be nice

    4/5

    I have owned MANY laptops in the past year and this touch-pad is nice and is near the top of my list. The touch-pad itself is slick, its smooth to the touch right out of the box. It's not like the touch-pads that are slick and your fingers stick and it takes 2 months to build up residue to help the process. Right out of the box with clean hands its ready to go which is a very nice touch. Its also very responsive, responding to the slightest touch.

    Nice pictures. Good point about the keyboard. You can disable the touchpad with Fn + F1. Benchmarks look pretty low.

    How about some vinyl stickers. Maybe one of an Alien head and you can confuse the crap out of people. ;)

    thanks for the more pics, could i get a pic of the back of the screen without the plastic on it? is it dark/black? or a bit brighter - thinking of getting a custom lid design on it :)
