I am really loving this laptop. When searching for a laptop, I decided that I wanted a laptop that was powerful enough to serve as a desktop replacement and be able to handle the advanced graphics of Vista. I am hardly ever at home...so it made sense to get something that I could develop on anywhere and at anytime. This machine certainly fit the bill for my needs; I can develop, play games and watch movies all without having to worry about performance and quality. O ya, almost forgot you can't beat the price tag for this beast of a laptop......$1499 at your local BestBuy.
