See my only complaint about my Dell Vostro

So far, I'm really liking my Dell Vostro 3300. The feel of the hardware is impressive, and it still surprises me at how fast some actions on it are (like opening up The Gimp).

Here's my only complaint so far. See:

What you're looking at is the backlit keyboard in action. I used it officially for the first time last night, and it worked great.

The problem? Next to the power button is a line of buttons used to control the volume and perform other media operations. You can't see them in the above photo because they aren't backlit. And that's the problem.

If you're going to go through the trouble of backlighting a keyboard, shouldn't you make the volume keys light up too? Especially, because they are already backlit - when you press them, they light up. Can they stay lit?

Still, if that's my only complaint, I'd call the Vostro a success. Well done Dell.
