My only wish is that since this has windows 8 I would love a touchscreen 1080. If it had touch I would be all over this. Might be why they are discounting so many laptops recently, that or they know that the economy is going to tank and they are trying to get as much out of us as possible when we still have money.
Technically yes and no. It only has two real cores, but it does have hyperthreading which gives you an additional two virtual cores.
It's a very solid CPU

is that a better deal than this Sony deal?? Any input would be great!
I personally like the Sony better for the higher screen res, backlit keyboard, and its looks. That being said the Inspiron's HDD is twice the size. So it kind of depends on what your preferences are - but yes the Sony deal is better. But if you have to ask you probably won't notice a difference - beyond the obvious of course.
I bought same laptop except
- I7 processor
- 1 TB hard drive
- GFX 2 GB radeon
- 8 GB DDR3
- Backlight ( I think this model should also have backlight)
for $686. I am considering sending it back to sony.
- Windows 8 sucks, it is so bad, I barely can operate the laptop for few minutes and gave up. Either I am completely idiot or Bammer. I know I can install win 7 but if I am spending $750 for a machine and have to spend hours to make it work, does not seem good deal.
- Buyers remorse as the price does not seems like good enough to retire my awesome 17" Samsung which going strong after 3 years.
Do you guys think paying $100 is overkill for my needs (no gaming, just browsing and playing movies). The build quality is pretty good (not as good as S series) but nothing to worry about. 1080p screen is good but may not make much difference if you are just browsing webpages.
