Agreed. I've seen the 300s IRL, and while they look a little less sloppy than they do in photos, they definitely are not pretty. They're very functional in appearance. If you're buying a laptop to impress girls at Starbucks (in which case, you might want to do some serious self-evaluation) this ain't the one for you.
