Nice laptop, great deal 08/18/2011
Build quality and design are very nice. Love having a dedicated GPU after using a laptop with an integrated gfx card. 6 gb ram along with i5 2nd gen + 7200rpm hdd makes things go fast. Love the touchpad and the multitouch gestures. Havent really tested any games yet but I have seen a lot of youtube videos of laptops with similar specs and gt 540m running many latest games at medium-high. (just search youtube for "gt 540m i5" to check these out)
Port placements and AC power placement. Would have loved a higher resolution screen, but the other specs outweigh this con. Webcam is low res, but I rarely use it. Speakers are a letdown but i usually use headphones so that does not matter.
After updating drivers for nvidia and the intel gpu, here are my windows experience index results:
Graphics: 5.7/7.9 (this is based on the intel graphics)
Gaming Graphics: 6.7/7.9 (based on gt 540m)
Primary HDD: 5.9/7.9
I also like that they premade two partitions of the HDD because I always do that to separate data from installed programs for organization.
