    I got it to look pretty for around $1800-1900*. But my standards are not that high since I have less than zero interest in gaming and the lowest end Core i7 more than suffices.

    * assuming you can live with the screen at 1080p glossy without 90% NTSC.

    I LOVE THIS THING. I will get this as my college laptop. I'm just happy 76 offers non intel graphics finally.

    Lugging that beast to and around campus would be a pain if you ask me.

    Weight and size isn't an issue for everyone; I opt for the biggest laptop I can find when I need a new unit. I once had a massive HP beast, with double-capacity battery replacement and a big secondary battery hooked up to the bottom. People used to mock its weight, but with 10 hours battery life and a decent screen, I thought it was awesome.

    For many of us, the benefits of a laptop are a smaller all-in-one unit. Battery life, size and weight aren't concerns.

    If you are primarily using a laptop as a desktop replacement (while only occasionally carrying it around) and will be hooking it up to an external monitor (dual monitor), then a 15.6" screen size would be more than adequate.

    Of course it is a desktop replacement therefore battery life is irrelevant. Unless you to use it for body building why would you carry a laptop of this size around?

    1000+ mhz GPU, as someone stated would be a dream for gaming, thats for sure

    Just wonder how much heat this bugger would be producing in a cramped laptop cavity..
