update (4/1/2015) Attached the mouse pics. The volume of the speaker is very nice. I really liked the trackpad
some very minor things which i didnt like:
There is no dedicated End button (had to use shift+ num 1 key in the num pad)
Finger prints :-( right from the day i opened the laptop, finger print was clearly visible.
The keyboard light doesnt come up unless we login. I have seen some posts regarding this in the internet.
I would have preferred a caps lock light on the key itself rather than below the trackpad
But i am not concerned about these, as these are just minor things.
i liked the feature of switching of the laptop screen off (fn+ f7) without turning off the laptop, helps just in case you need to step aside for few minutes.
The OS is installed on the SSD and therefore the boot time is very fast.
On full charge of the battery i am getting around 5 hours runtime.
One tip on swapping out the harddrive for an SSD: You will have to do a clean install of Windows 8.1 to do this. Your CD key is embedded on the laptop's motherboard, so all you do is burn a Windows 8.1 install DVD (off the internet), put the CD in, reboot the laptop, and install WIndows 8.1 fresh.
