It's quiet and very lightweight. Great laptop. There is one big negative though. The keyboard is smaller than most laptop keyboards. Makes for a lot of typos.

Makes for a lot of typos.Yeah...I have heard that. I have pretty small hands though, so I am thinking it might be okay for me. Is 1 GB of RAM and a 1.7 Ghz processor good enough for LS? I just want something that will last me three years, and I want to spend between $1500-$2000, more than that seems excessive.
I have one and its the best I have notebook I have ever owned. I have never heard the fan come on. As far as the keyboard its 3/4" narrower than a full size keyboard. People whine because the question mark and period key are half size. It sounds worse than it is and I never have problems with mistyping or missing those keys. The only downside to the 710m is no bluetooth. I paid less than $900 and got the extra hi capacity battery. Lenovo is crap and I would stay away from them.FYI Dell is introducing a replacement in a couple of weeks. The XPS M1210. Its basically the same but with dual core chip, built in webcam, bluetooth, and full size period and question mark keys which makes it the same width as a regular keyboard. The battery life is supposed to be over 7 hrs.
