I should also add mate. Once you get use to the ergonomics of the G9, there is no turning back!! lol
I started usign a G9 when my G7 broke after 3 years of use. 2 years later, when the G500 comes out, i buy to try, and find myself taking it back to the shop within 24 hours to get a G9x replacement. I just could not get used to the shape! Also, the software buggs were nasty.
