Is this an aluminum frame? The bezel looks very large - almost cheap, compared to the back and touch pad area.
Hate seeing the Microsoft deal having the better Ivy Bridge HD4000 option and this one last years version.

This does support 1080p OUTPUT (note screen res is 1366 x 768).
BIG FYI, if you got this and want to upgrade to an SSD, make sure you buy a slim SSD. The size must be 7mm or it will not fit. My boot time is already like 10 seconds with this thing on a 5400rpm hdd. I can't even imagine how well an SSD will do hahaha. Will probably be a 5s boot time or faster. That's phenomenal.
ANOTHER FYI. You will pay a premium for a slimmer SSD. These are my recommendations based off of price value. Here are my suggestions.
$67 / 60gb = $1.12 per gb cheapest option is the mushkin
$90 / 120gb = $.75 per gb best value option is the kingston

This is an older generation i3
looks like intel wasn't able to sell all their old inventory.
Anyone notice how bestbuy gimped their product info pages?
They don't even list the screen resolutions on laptops anymore.

Screen is 1366 x 768 FYI

|slayerfaith1982||Yea they're the same just different model numbers and processors but everything else is the same is my understanding. Not sure what the real world performance difference is between sandy bridge i3 versus ivy bridge i3 but I hard the Intel 4000 with ivy is a good bit better than the Intel 3000 graphics w/ sandy bridge (as far as integrated goes)|

[Edit] Ok. The diff is as slayerfaith said, the cpu. In both cases, it looks like ram is soldered on, but the HD is upgradeable.
