Purchased one, love it
Bought mine at respectable £899 from John Lewis in Liverpool.
The screen resolution is fantastic and it easily handles COD4 in full 1080p while running visual studio debugger in the background (I develop software for games)
Colour reproduction is very accurate and recommended for any digital artist handling both After Effects and Photoshop CS3 very comfortably.
There's no noticable ghosting and sound reproduction is crystal clear.
The microphone setup doesn't work for ingame chat (something I've experienced on all realtek based audio hardware)
However the dual mic-monitor provides excellent bg noise removal without the usual pops, clicks and distortion.
Not mentioned in the review is the Audio over HDMI feature, oft missing from hdmi equiped PCs/Laptops.
For HI-Def screens / Audio Hardware supporting this the sound reproduction is crystal clear with no noticable distortion or clipping.
That said the internal speaker setup is more than sufficient for an immersive music / movie experience, my only bug bear being the
speaker configuration while gaming.
The rear Channels are projected from the speakers on the back bottom of the laptop rather than the front which seems strange to me, I'd have been more comfortable with them the other way around.
Surround sound is a much under used defensive tool in the realms of Dolby compatable online gaming.
Nothing that can't be fixed with a little software jiggery pokery.
All in all a great piece of kit, especially at under a grand!
