My Dell Precision M70 is very nice. The silver color is just right, not too shiny or too dull. The battery life is nice and long, I can go over 3 hours without recharging. The fan blows out the back and just a little bit on the corner, so I don't have to keep it on a cooling station. The key placement is nice; I don't always accidentally hit the "=" or "\" key when reaching for the backspace. There are several downsides to this laptop. The first is its weight. I am not very strong, and when I'm seated on the couch and want to pick up my laptop, I have to use both hands. When I am on battery power, the screen goes much darker. I like it because that let's me know when I accidentally pull the plug out, but when I do have to use the battery, I can't do as much because the screen is so dark. All in all, there are good things that my Dell Precision M70 can do for me, but I have to be willing to give it things, too.
