Any thoughts on this notebook from users? I know it is rather new but maybe some people already own it?

Don't own it but

I would say the upsides are:

Good keyboard layout

and the downsides are

Smallish screen
Lack of internal optical
ULV Pentium M

I have no idea what the battery life is.

For me, the 700m, with the same screen, internal optical, regular Pentium M, and available extended battery which takes the battery life to 6 hours and beyond, is a better choice, even though it is about 2 lbs heavier and a little bit chunkier.

(NT) (NT) What is ULV? Isn't it a Pentium M?

Pentium M ULV

It's an Ultra Low Voltage version of the processor which runs at only 1.1 GHz. It runs very cool and is very light.

It's dell's first use of the chip; Sony has used it in their subnotebooks for some time. I don't know the details of the ULV but it seems it would be less powerful than, say, a Sonoma 2.13 GHz.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
