Can I just invalidate the person who says that it doesn't have a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 540m graphics card? Because mine certainly has one, I have uploaded photos as proof. Can I also say that the pattern which you can see on the back in those pictures isn't half as obvious as it is in the pictures!Read more ›
I wanted something that was going to be able to run Lightroom and Photoshop and hopefully not stutter on large imports as much as the one I currently has does.
For this reason, the USB3.0 inputs appealed alongside the spec of processor, dual hard drive bays and memory in particular.
I have been investigating the same spec laptops from other manufacturers and they are mostly considerably more expensive, and now I've had mine a few days I think I can see why.
The case is quite plastic; it's sturdy but not metal, such as my HP Elitebook for work. That said, I'm surprised how relatively light it feels for a 17" laptop. It's not an Ultrabook, but it doesn't feel too cumbersome to carry.
The SD card slot feels very flimsy. I'll be purchasing the Lexar UDMA CF/SD reader shortly; I don't think I'd want to be putting SD cards in and out of the laptop too often.
The blu-ray tray also feels quite flimsy; I think that will need handling with care.
Those things aside, I am still very pleased. I needed an almost desktop like replacement, that won't travel too often, so hopefully the quality of plastics shouldn't get too tested. The spec gives me scope to upgrade later on, in particular the dual hard drive bays mean I can drop in a SSD into one, and eventually upgrade the slightly sluggish 5400rpm 1TB drive supplied.
The keyboard feels responsive, the screen is rich & vibrant, although the glossy finish could annoy you in rooms with a lot of lighting behind you. Again, I'd tried it out in a store and it's acceptable for me, bearing in mind it's plugged in to a monitor most of the time.
In short, a very well spec'd laptop but if you're looking for something that'll get chucked in a bag a lot, I'd look elsewhere. If it's a desktop replacement that won't travel too often, I think this is perfect.
The specifications are as listed by Amazon and my first impressions are good. I ordered this along with a Samsung 256gb 830 SSD & notebook kit. Both came well packaged along with good documentation.
It took about an hour to get the laptop up and running, remove a very small amount of bloatware, and install AVG and Norton Ghost.
Setting up the SSD using the supplied Norton Ghost software proved problem free. I chose to make two partitions on the 1TB hard drive but in that wonderful thing called hindsight, I wish that I had made just one partition on the hard drive when I first set the laptop up. As it is I now have drives C & D on the SSD and F & G on the 1TB HDD, whereas I would have preferred just a C drive on the SSD and a D drive on the HDD The laptop instructions were clear on how to remove the hard drive and the laptop came with a hard drive caddy for a second drive. I made the SSD the primary drive, put the 1TB drive in the second slot and, with fingers crossed, booted up. I needed the supplied Windows 7 system recovery disk to start, which re-assigned drive letters and on the re-start everything was as it should be.
It is quiet and I find the resolution of the 17.3 inch screen better than expected from reviews I have read elsewhere, but I am not a game player.
Overall - very happy!
