I got practically the same thing from costco for 30 bucks more with a 6770m gpu + a 9 cell battery - blu-ray (but whats the point with this resolution screen?) back in january
Now im aware not everyone has a costco membership but there have been a few deals that i have kicked myself over for not waiting for a better deal. im pretty sure that there will be some nice deals this summer especially in august if you can wait that long, but if you must get a new laptop i would go for the other front page deal
PS the screen is 1600x900 which is not ideal but i'm fine with it.
PSS i got two 500GB drives @5400rpm, this 7200 one is ideal to pair up with an ssd in the first bay just for those who will bite

Off topic question - buying this, and then getting a SSD, what is the recommended method of transferring the drive data (partition and files, etc) to the SSD and having that as the main drive? I'd think that somewhere on the site, there has been chatter about this already.
