    Okay to clear up some things.
    Bluetooth: Unless you got the Cellular + Bluetooth Min-PCIE Card which you likely did not, than you do not install the Motorola driver. Just hit FN+f12 to turn it on and windows 7 at least will automatically install the drivers. It is a CSR Bluetooth Module.
    Bluesoleil likely will work with it but I doubt Toshiba or Broadcom stacks will.

    Processor: I went with the i5 540m, I found it was the best with the most effiecency and I have had no desire to have went with the i7. I don't know how much advantage it is over 450m but the price difference is so negligible, I would say it is a future proofing cost.

    Storage Drive: I notice the difference with the Momentus XT and have had no problems, what are these problems I have heard of none?

    Battery Life: I get 3+ hours of battery life and I have done no optimization. Just turned down the screen brightness. I can gaurntee if you do some optimizations for battery life you can get that much and more. Wen the new batteries ship you should get 5 hours or more.

    There is no problem taking out the battery while the notebook is plugged in. Will not hurt anything.

    Glad to be of service. :) Enjoy the new laptop!

    Speaking of which, toucanater and Podari, have you identified what causes the dropped keystroke in your cases?
    If this a model-wide problem, it's gonna be as suck as G51J(x) throttling problem.

    I believe someone did mention a few pages ago that it's being caused by HWMonitor, that was my experience as well. When HWM is running, it switches between GPUs about once a second which coincides with the occasional keystroke miss. I've had the laptop for a couple of weeks now and haven't seen this issue at any other time.

    I think you do not need a tutorial to write a review. Just describe the basic points like configuration, price, performance, I/O components, N/W, heat, and above all your own feeling/experience. Also some your clicked pics of device from different angles.

    So, now we are waiting for your review :D

    Part of writing a truly great review is experience with everything else that's out there. I know that's not terribly helpful but unless you have that experience, the best thing you can do that doesn't take anywhere near as long as a thorough review like the guys here at NBR do a lot is general impressions. Basically comment on the colors of the screen, the viewing angles, the brightness, and run some benchmarks even just with something like fraps at medium and high settings.

    Fraps is a free program, google it, it will show you fps in games that you run, so just run that and see what FPS it looks like you get.

    Run HWMonitor, another free program, and comment on the temperatures it reports both when using the"power saver" windows 7 power profile as well as high performance when running games. Comment on the quality of the touchpad, the feel of the keyboard, the material used on the case and the heat or lack thereof on the palm rest and keyboard.

    Run another free program called batterybar, and let it do it's thing, charge the laptop and unplug it (alternate charging and discharging) for a few days and comment on what it's guesstimated battery life times it reports are.

    That's really all there is to it until you have a lot of experience with other computers in the same price range or market, at which point you would comment on similar setups and the pros and cons of certain features or lack of features on the 5125 itself.
