    Quick question for you guys, if you tilt your screen towards you can you see down the bottom bezel a bit and see the screen glowing down there? I can't remember if it was like that on my original screen. It's not noticeable at normal usage angles. Cheers!

    If you mean the space around the media bar, yes I can see the screen glowing. Only the windows task bar though. Did you use a matter screen protector?

    Hi all ,

    Is there anyone switched from R3 To R4 ?

    The keyboard are the same made quality or better ?

    Ghosting issues?

    I'm pretty sure it's the same keyboard so if you had ghosting issues with the r3, they will probably be identical on the r4 as well.


    And the answer is yes to both of those questions. ;)

    Confirmed, this R4 replaced my R3 :)

    Edit: The new msata port is sata II and all the usb ports are now usb3.0 not just the two on the left side.

    1) The keyboard is amazing quality in my opinion, dno about R3 though.
    2) I haven't noticed any ghosting issues whatsoever.
    3) Sata3 works, yes.
    4) Yup it's disabled, which I actually prefer :)
