Wuggee Notes
Very good user reviews on TigerDirect
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. Higer power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5.84 lbs is typical for this screen size
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
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

Excellent team with good performance and good looks in their finishes....I never thought I'd say this but the trackpad alone is reason enough you should not buy this laptop....Good system for openSuSE Linux, which is a lot faster than 'Bloze 7 or 8....
