The M1530 just arrived, a full week early. I must say
that it makes a very good first impression, both in terms of the size reduction
from the M1710, and the overall appearance. The first blush is that this
might be the best laptop for me yet. The online information on it does
the machine poor justice.
Unfortunately, I ordered it with the high-capacity
battery. I had good reasons for doing so, but the website failed to mention
that the high-capacity battery raises the back of the machine a good inch at
least. Most people would likely appreciate that, as it makes typing
easier. But, as you know, it’s a real show-stopper in my case because
the laptop must lie flat on the table in order for the Velcro to work. I expected
the high-capacity battery to stick out the back, like on the M1210. Can
we do a swap with a regular battery or something? I can’t use the laptop
until we resolve this.
