I tested the latest M18x in person at a microcenter and it also had these issues. You know I think the main reason WASD gaming became popular was actually because of ghosting. It gets you closer to the modifier keys which are usually designed to work with more key combinations because they must work with at least every other key in a 2 key combo.
Also about the onlive comment. Onlive is a totally different market no serious gamer is going to touch onlive its laggy as ****, its a last resort. Sure if you have no other option you will try it but you could also make lots of other compromises like buying a crappy console etc... A thread about a gaming laptop is for quality gaming not compromises I could just as easily make ridiculous apples to oranges comparisons about smart phones killing PC gaming too.
