Oh, one good thing I just noticed about the W540... Lenovo got rid of the completely useless speakers that took up ~4" of keyboard space. On my W530, with the speaker area being so large, I was half expecting a symphony when I played music through them for the first time. So much anticipation, for such a let down. What I got instead was a tin can playing through a pillow.
