If the display is glossy there is no way I could use or recommend that system. Also the HDD is way too slow (5400 rpm is a deal-breaker) and the display resolution seems too low for the 15.6" screen size. I only recommend Lenovo ThinkPads, which are available with Windows 7.

Hey, my 15.6" display is 1366x768 <g>

I do however use 2 23" monitors when I'm on my dock as I need to see a lot of stuff and the laptop screen resolution is too low for my work. But when I'm traveling I like the lower resolution as my eyes have started to go bad in my old age! <g>

The fastest actual hard drive would be a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive. But an SSD like the Intel 520 series would be several times faster than that (and much more expensive). Scott.
