It has a discreet graphics card, meaning the main processor is not burdened by such duties. In the Nvidia software, you can elect to use the graphics either 'when required' (default), or 'always' (optional), which is probably worth doing if it is used as a desktop replacement.
It has an 'ice cool' palm rest, that doesn't get overly hot when the laptop is running.
The sound is really good, it uses its own chassis as a 'chamber', and has really good acoustics.
Other than that, the i3 processor with 6GB RAM, means it will tackle most tasks with ease. The screen is a bit glossy, but it's fairly sharp and clear, with a 1,366 x 768 resolution on a TN panel. The Ethernet is only 10/100, but most people will only ever use WI-FI anyway. The only thing that I can, and will change, is to swap the hard drive for a solid state drive (SSD), which will really speed up the only bottleneck on this system. (mSata is provided).
A great laptop, that will suffice as a desktop replacement, and manage some light gaming.
Completely flawless using photoshop and would be more than adequate with any games that you need to play.
For day to day use, it's amazing, although a bit on the heavy side, so I'd personally fork out an extra £50 for an ACER Aspire V3-371 if you want something portable. Overall, I'm definitely happy!
