Summary: I was pleasantly surprised from this product when it arrived, it looked good and is quite heavy. It was easy to set up and was very fast. It shuts down and restarts to desktop in approx 45 seconds. The sound and graphics are excellent, films are easy to watch and crystal clear. For some reason the cd would not read the installation dvd but most things worked anyway. I have just upgraded the memory to 12GB from the standard 6GB.
Summary: This laptop is fantastic. It's a full blown desktop replacement powerhouse of a laptop, yet its still small enough to carry around. If you are reading this you probably already know that the video card and processor are among the best available right now, the impressive part about that is that the laptop is managing over 3 hours of battery life without even lowering the brightness of the screen. The hard drives in raid are notably faster then a solo laptop drive.
