    Does anyone know what material the bottom is made of? The lid is clearly metal, but it doesn't seem clear what the rest of it is.

    ROFL. People and their unrealistic expectations. What's next? A smart car with 300HP, 60MPG, and a turbo-charger?


    Some people just crack me up.

    I saw this at BB just now. Its the R705. It look nice! The thing is the HDMI is too far to the edge on the left.

    It will give the Vaio S and Y run for the money.

    Yeah, it's a real shame the Envy 14 is as heavy as it is.

    A backlit keyboard would have done it for me.

    I noticed that. I too wish it were further back. Not a deal killer, though.

    Yah, its too near to the edge for the HDMI.

    Did it run cool? That I didnt check.

    The keyboard and overall look is nice. It is not a fingerprint magnet.

    The Toshiba had it for $999 at their site, but that include 3 yr warranty and bluetooth. I dont think the one at BB got all this.

    I'm really tempted to jump on this. i5 processor means I can load up and multitask tons of apps like an idiot without much lag. I've been looking to get a 3-year manufacturer's warranty, but it looks like this comes with it! :eek:

    EDIT: $999 version is still for i3.
