way overpriced...stick with intel, runs cooler, more efficient..
there are deals all the time that beat this...
here is a much better unit for 350 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...g=tbpre-20
As a bonus it includes 1 year accidental damage protection.
If you want your laptop to be super snappy, install an SSD for 80 bux (250gb)..
