I'll be the first to bitch about it - screen needs to be at least 900p on a 15 inch
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition (OC'd to 4.0 Ghz)
CPU COOLER: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5
GPU: Asus DirectCU II TOP Edition 7970

Weaker GPU than the Sony, and it's 15.6" whereas the Vaio is 17.3" and huge.
I'm in the market for a modestly priced (under $600) 14-15.6" with a strong GPU for the price range to run PS and CAD. Hooking up to an external monitor is a possibility, which is why I'm not sweating the low resolution (I'd prefer 1600x900 though) but I have to carry this from the USA to China so that Sony would be, er, cumbersome...
Are there any better deals than this without breaking my budget? The Newegg price for this Samsung is $200 less than anywhere else. I saw this[newegg.com] but this Samsung is cheaper and better

As many people said, 1366x768 is crap... Especially with the graphics card being in there.
I definitely wouldn't want to run games at 1080p with that graphics card. It's OK, but it's not a powerful GPU. I do think 1366x768 isn't a great resolution. But at the same time, games will look better and isn't that the reason you'd buy this system?
If someone wants all the bells and whistles, $550 probably won't cut it.
I like my GTX 650M w/ 1600x900. My system plays Crysis 2 and BF3 great at that resolution.
Yeah that's not bad either... If only I had another spare hundred bucks for the i7
You could go for a Dell 17R Special Edition when they have the 25% off sales and get a GTX 650M w/ i7 and 1080p for $700. That's a much better deal.
