I am a freelance graphic artist. I need graphic power to run my Adobe Creative apps efficiently. This machine delivers. It is much faster than my desktop which is a Core2 Quad running at 2.83 GHz. It is also extremely pleasing to the eyes without looking too much like an Alienware gaming machine. I personally like the gaming look but needed a machine that delivered gaming performance while still looking professional in front of my customers. It is a bit heavy. It would be a load on long trips where a lot of walking is required. If that is the case for you, I would suggest a pull-behind solution when looking at cases. Had some trouble finding a case that it would fit in. This is an over-sized, 18-inch laptop. Most of the large bags are for a 17 inch. You may need to special order a bag. I took my Qosmio into staples and found a bag that was actually spec'd for a 17-inch, but was able to make it work. It wouldn't fit in most 17-inch bags. I was disappointed when I realized that the keyboard doesn't light up on this model. It also does not have bluetooth. Pay attention to the specs if you want these options. You'll need to upgrade and pay a little more for them. I should have been more observant. I was looking too closely at the other performance specs and while comparing, I took it for granted that these features were standard. They are not. Overall, still a very nice machine. Boots up fast and runs great! I'm pleased. Also, for a very small shipping upgrade, I received this the next day from Amazon! Loved that!

first the laptop review.....

i5 chip is great, found a pro review online on the chips, i3 is good, i5 is better, i7 is only around 5 percent better, the i5 is the best value for the money..

large screen, 17.3 would have been fine but could not find a toshiba i was happy with in that size, better to go larger then smaller anyway.

speakers are much better then the tinny sound of my sony viao vgnar150 model this is replacing, a deeper rich sounding speaker.

like the key board alot, still learning the buttons so its hard to comment on the red lights on the left, but either way no big deal, ill learn them soon enough.

gaming of course is great, had a toshiba laptop, got the sony after it became too slow for my needs, sony failed after 3 years, wanted another toshiba for they seem to last much longer..

love windows 7 gauges that tell you how hot your laptop gets, how much your fans are running, much better in terms of keeping track of how your computer is doing...

colors of the laptop is just sexy, fingerprints do suck,they show up everywhere on the black surface, buy the screen cleaning pads and clean your laptop once a week or so, otherwise don't bother me in the least..

4 usb ports,two on each side, none is the back, touch pad if you don't use it, can be turned off, real cool for i always use a cordless mouse and rarely use the touch pad, but it can magnify if you want it to, a great feature ill never use..

performs well of course for it does have a 2.4 processor speed with a boost up to 2.

I purchased this over a month ago and I'm not a gamer or anything like that - I use it as probably most people do, Office, Typing and Internet. This review is based upon that and not gaming, and may be an alternative to those "gaming reviews" that are not as relevant for many of us.
Upon opening the box I was most impressed by the appearance - muted and tastefull with enough highlights to stand out from the crowd but not be over the top and in your face.

Comparison Unit - My old machine was a Toshiba 205 series laptop, still working, but working hard, purchased only two years ago, and I'll use that for comparison - it had a 1.7 chipset by intel inside. AS nearly as I can tell the same software is operating on both machines - except an upgrade? from Vista to 7.

Appearance - The difference in appearance was remarkable, old to new, and having looked at many my personal opinion is apart from a couple of HP's, they don't get much more pleasing to the eyes than this machine.

Physical Size - Like the reviews say - it's BIG for a laptop, but that's no reason to complain as anyone buying an 18"+ screen has to know it will be.

Fingerprints Issues - As has been mentioned - pawprints are an issue, but I'll happily take the issue as the laptops aesthetics are well worth it.

Screen Size - It's great for anyone needing a larger than normal screen - for myself it is easy to read and gives lots of freedom of choice when dealing with multiple windows.

Screen Resoloution - Superb - for the size you can spend more and get more, but you won't physically see the difference - unless you intend to put into another big screen TV and then it might be worth it, stressing might!
