    I too would like to see some pics, also can the screen still double as a mirror?

    Joking aside, that's actually something I was curious about and wondered if they'd made any changes to the glossy screen. It's the one thing that's (almost) putting me off buying one.

    I do, however, want one so badly that the devil on my shoulder is whispering 'man up and play in the dark' haha. :D

    I immediately put my Green Onion screen protector on, but the screen seems a little but better than the R1, or the fact I had been playing on a T420 with Intel HD until this came makes this seems like the BOMB

    For those who already have one, does it still throttle while gaming on battery?

    I wanted an R1, but a few issues held me back.

    Ooh yeah I was looking at those for the M14x and was wondering whether they were worth the $35. I'm guessing you'd recommend them? Was kinda worried they'd dull picture clarity a bit.

    And yeah, totally jealous you have an R2 already. :p

    EDIT: Found a great user review of the Green Onion protector here on NBR so no need to get back to me on that. ;)

    terpsy can you also talk about temps? If you can also play with the laptop on your legs and tell me if it's an issue or not, I know with my R1 when I play for 1 or 2 hours with the laptop on my legs it's just too hot and it's really annoying, my last question is about the fan noice how is it compared to the R1? Thanks :D

    so to those who already have theirs, out of curiosity, what was your ship date? I ordered mine on the second day that it was out and my ship date is on may the 24th, seems like a long time to me (over a month) are they just being really conservative with their production times?
