At first glance you'd probably think this thing is from outer space, the aluminium casing, the 18.4 inch LED screen hiding between the speakers, the matte black keys, it looks amazing.
Unfortunately the price and weight of this beast are less than exciting, I would consider this a desktop replacement rather than a portable machine.
The sound quality is fantastic, as it should be sporting those speakers. There's also a HDMI port and a combo headphone/SPDIF output for connection to a hi-fi system.
Video quality is also good, the 1920 x 1080, Color-Shine display and screen modes make sure of this. And this Bad boy runs fairly quite to boot, which is always nice from such a big laptop.
The CPU and RAM make sure that this thing runs like a dream, i7 740qm coupled with 6GB of ram is good enough to handle whatever is thrown at it. The video card is also good enough to handle most games on medium to high graphics, and HD Videos run seamlessly.
The Battery-life on the other hands leaves a lot to be desired, don't expect much more than one to one and a half hours.
