As noted in my review, they are definitely using Broadcomm WiFi/BT chipset instead of Texas Instruments, which I found to be a great decision. Other than that, these are pretty standard--tell us in comments if you see anything cool or uniqe!

Well, after seeing Santod's .pdf ... I'm left with pretty much have the same feeling as when I've seen any of those new, over-the-top horror movies. You know, anything by Eli Roth, Rob Zombie and the like? I basiclly wanted to turn away, but by picture #4, I just had to keep scrolling down! Uggghhhh!!! Now I feel kinda dirty all over.
It's nice to see that the hinges are actually made from metal.
care to enlighten us on the pros and cons of the broadcomm vs ti wifi/bt chips? i saw the link to ur previou post about the wifi idle battery sipping...but is there anything else which makes it better?
Range/Reception is also good. It doesn't get as hot as the TI version. It uses the Broadcom/Widcomm bt stack, which has more options that the MS version. It reconnects faster and I've had no issues with it.
