    that may be a good Christmas boost for Microsoft this year. I'm pretty convinced to switch to it when available.

    I agree, also, I just turned on the Aero Peek, and I'm still running it fine. It will definitely come in handy since I'm working on such a small resolution. I also plan on maxing out ram to 1.5GB, it will help enough, especially b/c its only like $12 for the RAM I need.

    I didn't have any problems copy/pasting my mp3s for use in Media Player in Win7.

    That's one thing that kinda sucks about it for me, is I only have a 16GB SSD so it takes up a little less than half of my memory, not leaving much for media. Not what I bout the notebook for anyway

    My dell hotkeys work too, without having installed any drivers myself. if I hit Function Escape, it puts my machine into standby just like it should. takes about 3 seconds

    That would make more sense on a Tablet IMO.

    Overall Win 7 = awesome. Probably will install it on my laptop too. It runs faster than Vista, it give me better performance in games (while automatically updating my driver to the official nVidia one).

    While I don't think that the comparisons for Vista to ME are proper, I do think that this is a big step forward so far.

    here's what they did. they took the fat bloat out of vista, they added some eye candy, reorganized the boot process, and made the control panel a hell of a lot nicer. win win win
