I wish the keyboard was illuminated. The keyboard is very hard to see if you are not in a well lit area. This is my first laptop with a webcam; Skype is fun! This computer doesn't have a hibernate option, only sleep mode. Also isn't bluetooth capable. A couple features I didn't look for when I was searching for a new laptop.

The keyboard is dark and needs the option of illuminating. My first laptop with a webcam, and using Skype is fun. The laptop doesn't hibernate; only sleeps. I also wish it was bluetooth enabled.

I bought this M505-S4972 on an impulsive buy, paid too much for it, but i guess its my fault for not looking into the model before buying. There are problems with the air card from what ive read, even though i will never use it. There are some other issues with the machine i cant quite put my finger on, but i know they exist, usually when i see windows animations not working it means something is clashing with something else in the background. Lack of Restore CD/DVD's, had to pay for them to restore the machine, which did not fix anything. Overall i think this laptop is not a great buy, but alas, im stuck with it for now. Would've definitely not have bought it if had known about the little details. Do you have any sort of bios updates or hardware/software updates as of Jan 2010???
