    I believe iUnlock did, but he's quite busy with work and so it's been delayed.

    Quiet
    Cool
    Fast (holds turbo through all games)
    No stutters or latency in AAA games
    nice screen
    Relatively compact
    decent battery life (6:30 regularly)

    Dislike: gap at the bottom of the sides of the screen. It gives the laptop a different look that I'm not a fan of. I prefer unibody.
    trackpad is just okay.
    I'd rather have a centered keyboard, but this is because I rarely use a numpad

    Does anyone know if opening up the back cover to add an SSD voids warranty?

    The reason why I'm asking is because there are 3 screws that are covered up by a black sticker on mine.

    The time-honored tradition with anything like that is 'don't tell them you opened it and if you need it serviced, take out whatever you put in.'

    Waiting on one of these to be delivered next week. Seems like some variety in the SSDs - I ordered an EVO on the assumption that all the Aero 15s had SATA SSDs. Any US customers finding that isn't the case?

    The one that came with mine (purchased from Mobile Advance through Amazon) came with a TS512GMTS800 which is a SATA based SSD.

    I just stuck in a Samsung PM961 SSD as a storage drive today to store all my games and files on. Works great. :)

    So it seems my laptop doesn't choose to use the Nvidia card during gaming. Anyone know how I can fix this?

    Never mind! Figured out that if I have the fan profile set to silent, the performance sucks.
