    I haven't put much mileage on mine but I take it along when I'm traveling and when I'm out and about at the coffee shops - just to show off...:)

    I have both the 500 GB external HD and the DVD drive that match the Adamo Pearl. Looks pretty snazzy with those sitting on each side.

    I've thought about getting a bigger SSD but they still seem to be awfully pricy.

    As of last week, I said goodbye to my beautiful Oynx. I thought I would keep it for another 5 years as I bought myself a motherboard, etc. But it's been a while and it actually is the record longest period I have kept a laptop. As much as I am sad, I must say good luck you all!

    Just picked up this laptop on Craigslist for $250 even though its just a low end model (meh). Its not bad for the price and especially how sleek it looks. Installed windows 8 and synaptics website driver and the Windows 8 motions on the track pad works just peachy.

    I will just say that the screen appears very washed out on Windows 8. :\

    I will have to updgrade and for my taste, the only thing that can compete with adamo and air is this:

    VIZIO Thin + Light Touch

    On the pics the quality looks equal to apple and adamo. From other major brands the ultrabooks are cheap build, really a shame.

    Problem for me is that VIZIO only ships to US and not Europe.

    I would agree. It is very angular and sharp. Perfect fit.

    I just don't like the lame silver and there is no backlit keyboard :(

    And of course... No ultrabook beats the Adamo when it comes to ports..

    Trying to get a WWAN card never really worked out for me (always driver issues) so I installed one of these Bplus with 2 x 64GB MicroSDHC. Works like a champ, much cheaper than a 256GB SSD. Using W7U x64. Fashioned a plastic strip between the two adjacent cards as a retainer as this card is 1/2 size (there are filler plates available from other sources if you prefer).
