What's the matter?

We decided to get this exact model (Lenovo has several models on sale right now). It's cheaper because the 3rd gen i-cores are making their push into the laptop market, so these are "last years" models, but still, the specs are pretty damn nice. Has everything we needed, especially the discrete graphics so my wife can run sketchup and autocad better. We had the Lenovo G555 which is several years old, but still not bad (for a $300 laptop), I'm sure this one will blow it away though.

I should also mention the one thing I dislike about this laptop, and it's become very common with Lenovo laptops at least, it doesn't have a expresscard port or a firewire port.

Which do you think is the best laptop? Need more info.

Well I think this laptop is the best deal overall, the best in cost/benefits, but they do have like the 3rd Gen i-core laptops on sale, but they're also near a grand (with the sale), so I still think this laptop is the best for the budget. For someone who doesn't need to do graphic-intense tasks (games/CAD), but moreso does the usual stuff (internet, Office suites, etc) the i5 is plenty adequate (http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=457&Code=08626FU&category-id=F41BC8E1656C5F85171FBDB172571912) but for the extra $70, doubling the RAM and upgrading to the i7 seems worthwhile.

Sexy specs-if Windows * wasn't around the corner (literally), I would pounce on this-my 4 year old HP lappie is struggling even with Core 2 Duo 4 GB RAM & Win 7 x64

Windows 8, not *- Damn shift button *shakes fist :)

They have an ad on the site stating you can pre-order Win 8 with the purchase for an extra $15. The link leads to here: https://windowsupgradeoffer.com/en-US/

Crazy price for both these specs and a Lenovo laptop in general. I can only drool over these specs... Ugh, I bought my Lenovo for $600 a year and a half ago and it's only an i5 and 4 GB ram :|

Now that's a awesome price for a laptop with all that.

It's crazy to think that a laptop could have these specs. Back in the day (like 3 years ago) desktops didn't even have a 500HD.
