Pros: - OS (Windows 7 Home premium) runs blazingly fast on the hybrid HDD+SSD drive.

- Many games run at max settings (Crysis 2, BF3, ANY MMORPG, and mmofps..etc) atleast at 35 FPS solid. All thanks to the GTX 660m!

-Rapiddrive technology is actually fairly decent at managing what programs get put onto the ssd and wht stays on the HDD.

- Cheapest price for this laptop i have seen yet. ($1070 as of August 27 2012).

-Fantastic price-to-performance ratio. ( Id be paying 2 grand for an apple competitor)

Cons: -SSD and HDD are NOT seperated, if you thought you were getting a 750 GB hdd, and a 64 GB ssd, you were wrong. HOWEVER, you are getting a very decent hybrid drive, with a controllable HDD in terms of wht you can put in it, and an ssd portion built into the HDD, that places commonly used programs in it to speed of run times (not controllable).

Other Thoughts: -REMEMBER FUTURE BUYERS, THE GTX 660m is LEAGUES better than any of the GT series mobile cards! (Dont make the same mistake buyers love making, they see a nvidea GT 650m, NOT GTX <--The "x" is vital, it indicates high end in this generation!)

- The GT 650m for comparison runs crysis 2 at max, at 11 FPS.

-Some exceptions to what i said in the PROS section: METRO 2033 at ultra is ~20-25 fps, Crysis on ultra at 25-35 fps.

^keep in mind most desktops cant run these two games that well, at the same price point lol xD

-The hybrid drive is actually good! :D Lenovo's rapiddrive technology does a good job tracking wht should stay on the HDD and wht should be transferred to the ssd. And therefore, i wont be docking a star for the SSD not being manually controllable in terms of wht you choose to put on it.

- The entertainment pack is meh at best, and the US deal for this laptop is better 999.99 (no pack though).
