    That's a good deal you got, I'm unsure about the lunar white though, the yellow stains reports doesn't sound good man.
    In any case, congrats on the new system and welcome to the club. Keep us posted.

    My order from Hidevolution went into in-production today, so I'm hoping Hidevolution got the "all clear" from Dell. I hope Donald will report in here by the end of the day.

    So I ordered 1mm and 1.5mm Fujipoly Ultra Extreme Pads and I am having trouble finding 2mm thick pads. You think it's ok to combine .5mm pads on 1.5mm to get it to the right thickness?

    I've got my lunar white since 2 months now and keep it clean. I don't see any sign of it turning yellow. I do never rest on the palmrests. S.K reported the stains could be because the audio board gets hot. It only gets hot if you plugin directly it seems. I only use a usb headset and it never gets hot.

    Those are extremely expensive.
    Isn't something like this more cost effective?

    And I don't know where you can buy 2mm pads. You can combine a 0.5mm and a 1mm but you lose thermal performance, but it's better than no pads.
