    Ordered a 14 last night. upgraded the GPU and the screen. I'm feeling worried about the fan noise though :( I hope its not as bad as the r1 and r2. I had both and they were really loud when gaming.

    So since I already saw reviews about the fan issue not being fixed I just went ahead and cancelled my order and ordered the 17 :D

    I'm interested in seeing reviews regarding the cooling system. I realize it's tough to fit separate cooling fans for the GPU & CPU in a 14" chassis, but single fan solutions just don't seem to cut it these days. I'm so sick of overheating with my current Dell that I need to be sure it's not going to be a problem with the replacement.

    I ordered one on June 11th, and the estimated ship date is July 19th. I guess it is more of a "pre-order" than a real order. Kind of disappointed with the delay in the shipping. I wish that when you are purchasing it they would let you know it would be 6 weeks before it would actually be shipped... And by the way, there is a $150 off coupon you can use... at least on dell.ca

    I ordered it with the following specs:
