    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    Most powerful processor available
    Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
    7 hrs battery life is better than average
    Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
    15.4" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
    Weight of 5.6 lbs is typical for this screen size
    Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money
