Nice laptop for a lefty. I'd go for it if the layout was exactly the opposite.

I am seriously considering getting this laptop (granted i get hired soon, in the paperwork process now).

I could pair it up with some nice sound too:
Newegg.com - Creative 70SB095000004 24-bit 48KHz ExpressCard Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook - Sound Cards

The laptop actually comes with an mx518 mouse already, so id be set for gaming on the go.

And i love the dual hdd bays. I can throw my music collection and a few movies on the secondary, and keep my programs and os installs on the first. I could try to sell my current laptop for about $300 on ebay to bring down cost a bit.

And in terms of gaming, apparently this lappy gets a good 7000 in 3dmark06 at 1280x1024...very impressive for a midrange graphics solution.
