720P isn't bad *for gaming* because of increased frame rate but it's crap for productivity and movies. I would say if you only write papers and crunch numbers go super high res, but if you're a broke gamer go low res for the lonevity factor.
And the HP is $50 more than the Lenovo. It's availible with a 1080p screen. I had one myself and LOVED it, but HP is stupid and they send me an Arabic KB --so I returned it and ordered a European dual GPU Thinkpad via a family member. The Thinkpad is better but NOT cheap.

Hell there's one right now with at least double the performance on FP for only $150 more. And you say they can't put a 1080p display on for this price...

There are far more people in these forums crying about resolution at bargain prices just like you and I'm sure you have no problems finding tampons to fill your bloody gash.

A larger screen makes the software less effective and I will continue to buy laptops with this resolution until it makes the software more useful.
I am only commenting because so many of you tards always chime in about how a cheap laptop doesn't give you some sort of retina experience. STFU and spend some money if you want a better resolution. There are plenty of options.

My CRT in the 90's was 1440*1200...

I argee with you about the APU but ill be honest, I would think the ideal solution for a power user would be i7 + dGPU. Preferably a dGPU of GT 650 and above. My only caveat about that setup is checking the temps and not wanting the CPU to run hot all the time. And also the price. Youre not gonna get that kind of power below $650 these days, for GT 650 or beyond, may have to pay even more.
APUs are awesome for people that want all around power without breaking the bank. Love how easy it is to overclock the Llano and some AMD fans prefer it over Trinity, its wild.

Then you'll find several decent i5+low end Nvidia GPUs for the same budget.
It's about what you need in a PC. To use the overblown car analogy --don't buy a sports car if what you need is a hatchback, and don't buy a minivan when you really need a pickup. Get what you need for what you're doing.

#1 This drive is too slow and the RAM sucks. No way I'd ever go conversion, editing or transcoding on anything without a GPU(or APU), SSD and good RAM.
One corner cut is okay --four (including the resolution) is too many.
#2 An APU is the only mobile CPU worth a damn outside of desktop replacements. Intel gets raped in mobile performance below 45w (AMD doesn't even make a 45w mobile APU) and AMD gets better battery life.
Thing is, Intel is back at their BS a la Prescott v. Athlon. AMD isn't even readily availible --and AMD's contracts are disappearing despite massive desire to own them. Not to mention no APU machine on the market is even availible properly configured OOB. Just stupid...

On the subject of tampons...doubtlessly, you're an expert in that field. Care to tell me where to find a good tampon deal?
Here's a free tip to increase your "worker's productivity." High resolution means more retail space on their screen, which leads to more things they can see at once, which leads to...you guessed it, boss-man, increased productivity!
I don't see how someone supposedly working at a leading position in a business can't see such a simple connection.
