You already posted that

And I find IE7 to be pretty buggy right now, but it'll improve. Anybody else find that the home page it sets itself to looks all funny and everything's in the wrong place? Also, at one point, it stopped browsing altogether, I had to close it and reopen it.

And I can't get my head round the UI, and it's laggy when you scroll up and down with the mouse wheel...

Hmm. Not convinced just now, I'm afraid.
