Wuggee Notes
Most powerful processor available
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higer power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Advanced GPU sufficient for latest, most demanding games fluently at medium detail settings at HD resolution
GPU is not suitable for most demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high detail settings and HD resolution
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5.3 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
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
