    I was surprised at the black. I was expecting it to look the same as the m17x R2. it's got a more metallic look to it though which I like even better.

    Over all I got to say it looks better the the R2. From the softtouch on the wrist area to the shiny look around the keyboard. The new buttons are definitely better the the capacitive ones on the R2 as well.

    Currently running an Acronis backup of the factory install. One that is done I will play with it some and install the 2nd drive and the memory. Need to break for lunch anyway, blood sugar is dropping.

    I actually did but the flash made the pic all washed out. I can take another in a bit. I will upload the washed out one.

    I agree gun metal would be the best color..

    but the r2 looks tiny in comparison to the m18x, what scares me a bit.

    Huge Picture Update Incoming!!!

    Well I setup my tripod and remote release and took some more pictures. This time providing thumbnails and higher res pics. I had my 5 and 6 year old nieces over so you are likely to see some smudging or finger prints as they "liked how it feels and the little alien guys eyes glowing". I guess proof even metal and rubber are not immune to kids fingerprints.

    I took some of the screen as well close up but without an actual macro lens that is the best I could do. However this only gives you an idea and really isn't that useful IMHO because even of course this all determines on what you are viewing the source with and unless both our monitors were calibrated to the exact same color and settings it's not really a good comparison but I did it anyway since some people were asking.
