Other Thoughts:

(I own the one with the 1366x768 screen otherwise identical j073cl)

After wiping and installing Windows 8.1 cleanly with catalyst 14.7rc, I have fallen in love with this thing. Its my first portable computer and I'm old, nothing ever had the horsepower as compared to my desktops within a respectable price range, for me.

Its very fast, sitting on the table in a warm room its holding around 3.15GHz maxxed with no issues, and the power brick doesn't seem to be overworked at all either. Underside belly will heat up when working hard, seems to be where the RAM is, cooling pad should allow this thing to burn full out for years.

I'm not sure I like the shell. Its not metal but rather some kind of thin brittle plastic with some kind of metallic paint covering. I get the feeling there is a serious metal chassis underneath by the weight. The surface is gritty, has a sheen, and attracts filth, yet it cleans up easy enough and also seems to be tough. A few times I banged it yet kind find a mark.

Everything just works, and well. The machine is a joy to use and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for more than your average notebook for a respectable price.
