All the usual reasons laptop snobs gets all worked up:

1366x768 display
No HDMI
No USB 3.0

All are valid points, but getting a 2nd gen I7 Sandy Bridge with Lenovo build for this price will make A LOT of people very happy!

There is HDMI. No USB 3.0 but has eSATA.

Good deal imo, will wait out though, since I have to pay tax/recycle fee in CA!

gtmaster303 12-28-2011 11:56 AM

The laptop is also integrated graphics. With an i7? Really?
Who buys a rig with a processor this powerful and skimps everywhere else? I'd rather go for an i5 with dedicated graphics in the same price range. Much more all rounded system...

BuckeyeRideR 12-28-2011 11:58 AM

if this had blu-ray, usb 3.0, and 1080led i'd be in 4 1

You picked the wrong problems. The real problem is pairing an i7 with integrated graphics so its pretty much unusable for gaming.

exactly. otherwise, i'd be in.

musicman40nj 12-28-2011 12:21 PM

lol -- all these crappy bundles -- I need blu-ray burner, 1080p, HDMI out, and hi-res screen.. With this crappy configuration you might as well buy an Ipad 2 over this POS....

and if you're not using this for any intensive tasks such as gaming, real world speed is no different than an i3

it's a very weird laptop this one.
I have no idea what kind of person it's meant for...

probably the 99.9% of laptop users that dont want to beat their heads against the wall trying to play 3d games on a tiny laptop.

this is a screaming fast laptop, great for a business user for the money

musicman40nj 12-28-2011 01:19 PM

I would kick up $800-850 for that config... $600 for crappy resolution, crappy battery life, no blu-ray burner and no HDMI out really limits this machine for most of what I would use it for... Not looking to game -- have a PS3 and a Wii for that. Hard core gaming is best for a desktop PC.

let me get that fusion reactor out of your mom's backside... If only here backside wasn't so big maybe I could find it and my car that I parked in there. With that HDMI out I can put the pic of that up on the 60" HDTV in the living room...

nihonboy 12-28-2011 01:22 PM

If I'm just looking for a fast laptop for surfing the web and messing around in photoshop would this be a good deal for me?

Yuniverse 12-28-2011 02:30 PM

As many others have already pointed out, why do these manufacturers try to fool people by combining sandybridge i7 with integrated graphics? Either lower the cpu and cut the price or combine a descent dedicated graphic!

yea, should be fine

musicman40nj 12-28-2011 04:05 PM

messing around on photoshop at this resolution? I think I would look for a higher res screen... people keep buying this junk in the masses -- I will wait for a more suitable deal...

johnzie 12-28-2011 04:22 PM

bought a couple for gaming.

why so many laptops are using this crappy resolution.... even on a 15.4'' or 17.3''

Why the hell do people stay in California? What's the benefit of paying all of those damn taxes?

I wish this laptop had a video card...

It keeps costs low. If you need glasses, or have dirty ones that you never clean, there isn't much point in spending extra $$ on a higher resolution.

You are going to game on these? What are you playing? Solitare? Do you know how to add a video card to these things?

You forgot to edit that "here backside" part. I think you were aiming for "her"?

Yea, those business users. Gotta have an i7 for excel. It's so resource intense.

irvington 12-28-2011 09:44 PM

Picked this up about 6 mo ago. same machine except 2.0mhz instead of 2.2 this has. and mine had a blu-ray writer.

been a solid system but the drivers seem outdated. getting drivers from manufactures f.. messed up my system.

HAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHA!!

I agree, I7 with dedicated graphics isn't my kind of recipe, but i would assume its meant for a robust research programs such as matlab and java and mathematica, etc..

thetran209 12-28-2011 10:29 PM

i7 with HD 3000 Graphics....PASS!

Why would I add a video card? I'm going to use these as ping pong paddles. More surface area than our current small paddles.

burticus 12-29-2011 06:40 AM

Still looking for one in this price range with blu-ray and decent graphics. i7 is nice but leaving it with HD3000 integrated graphics dooms this one for powerpoint/excel use.

Is it better than the laptop I currently use for work? Absolutely.

silicon valley unfortunately, keeps most of us locked here.

20% higher living costs, 9% income tax, 9-10% sales tax. Somehow the state is still bankrupt, I think we need a slickdealer in office, someone who understands what a dollar is worth!

The fusion reactor would be nice but I think most of us are waiting for the one with the soft serve ice cream dispenser and built in leaf blower that can play Crysis.

lebe 01-11-2012 12:01 AM

I don't understand what nishe does this laptop fit. For web browsing, e-mail and office work one can buy i3 laptop for half the money. For any serious gaiming one need dedicated GC. For development, image processing etc. you'd better buy a dualcore i5 with 7200 rpm hd. Plus no blueray. Strange, very strange...
