Much slower to put the SSD in the ODD slot. see less The Optical Disk Drive (ODD) which is the DVD drive can be changed to an SSD with a caddy, but unless you are using it as storage I would never do that.

Answer:
Glossy. Looks nice and sharp!, I love this display. I don't have reflection issues in my room with lights on ( desk lamp and ceiling light) but not tried outside or under bright florescent lights (if need to I can check in basement where we have many florescent tubes).

Next to my awesome 22" matte 1080p Samsung led LCD TV I just got (from amazon) the ASUS display is crisper. And the TV has a great display but the glossy IPS display in this ASUS rocks! *edit: I did try it in brighter light and I can see reflection if certain colors. Like if I put the entire screen blue when it was restarting and doing updates, I can see myself with bright lights on. Right not typing this under lights and the screen is white allot, I do not see any reflection. see less Glossy. Looks nice and sharp!, I love this display.

Still on high end games at high settings the DDR3 can be a bottleneck compared to the GDDR5 VRAM. Still great machine though, but if a serious gamer that plays demanding games at high resolution and settings then I would look for something with either the GDDR5 version or better yet get an GTX860M (if money is no object then an GTX870M or GTX880M). Kind of dumb they even used the GDDR3 version since it couldn't have been more than $20 for them to have used GDDR5 rather than GDDR3 in this laptop (Pay attention ASUS!, most would gladly pay the difference for GDDR5 and it would increase sales of the N550 series). But I am not a serious gamer so its fine for my use of AutoDesk AutoCAD and Inventor (plus maybe GTA V if it comes out on PC). And I am not worried it is the 2GB VRAM version cause from what I have read, to effectively take use of say the 4GB VRAM version you would need GDDR5 anyway. see less GDDR3, But I read the Maxwell architecture works better with the DDR3 than the GT750M could.
