W500 good news?

2008-10-14, 17:27 PM

I see this page mostly contains questions about problems with the W500. Can someone confirm that aside from these issues, y'all are actually happy with the machines? i am about to order one, today, but it's a huge chunk of change. I've done my research, it seems to be the best machine for what i need, but all these issues are beginning to concern me. It's fast, it's smooth, it's powerful? is it very noisy?

 

in short: Do You Love Your W500?

thank you.

Ediggy,

 

I couldnt be happier. The W500 has handled everything wonderfully from photoshop to architecture graphics and programs. Mine is extremely quiet and runs very cool. I'm running XP with the 2.8 ghz intel.

 

good luck!

Had mine for a week. My first laptop after 15 years in my industry.  Runs two screens and cad applications wonderfully.

I think this review is quite accurate:

You must particularly notice the keyboard and display brightness problems presented in the above article. My W500 has exactly the same problems...but I think they are acceptable.
