i checked it out. quality is actually quite good. i was surprised. i'm in low light conditions yet it picked up a surprising amount of detail. very good. the only thing is that there was a noticeable amount of grain. graininess? it may have been due to the low light conditions, but the cam is good, i think. cam is high high quality. ever so noticeable grain. good image quality.
Everything about the laptop i love. The feel of the keyboard, the trackpad, the weight, the sturdyness, the core i3 is great, but it COULD use some dedicated volume buttons somewhere on it. but it has an FN combo to vol up/down so o well. After installing a bunch of programs and running a bunch of stuf i wasnt even able to get it to lag at all... it runs a BIT hot on the top left corner where the fans are, but its definitely not uncomfortable at all. its the perfect size, i love it! 800$ @ bb + 70$ tax and 7$ recycling fee. i got the last one in stock after checking several different BB stores :P
also it comes with very little bloatware that can be uninstalled immediately. I also love how its all black (except the outside cover), and how the whole laptop is basically a matte finish, except the somewhat-glossy screen. Matte is great! The battery life is nowhere near 8 hours for me because i use high brightness and run lots of stuf, but i dont mind, 5 hours is plenty.
This more or less crushes the ULV competition in the thin/light arena and performance combination. As long as battery life and the lack of a dedicated GPU not a worry, this more or less trumps the Vaio Y and UL30VT/JT.
update - i left my laptop on for about 5 hours now using it, running lots of stuff, including copying 80gb of stuff from an external hard drive onto it, and it is definitely pretty hot, but to be honest, not as hot as i'd expect it to be. if u lift the back of the laptop up just a little bit, it won't get uncomfortably hot no matter what
As far as power consumption, ill do a test later if i have time with the battery at 100%, but im sure it can hit 8 hours if you put everyone on lowest settings. With what I use, i think im getting approx 6 hours on it, but i havent done any tests yet.
