    1366x768 screen is a bit of a deal killer for me, That was a good spec 5 years ago

      I have a USB dock for all use at home, for mobility the screen res is fine.

      Good point though and was fully taken into consideration before buying

      My 7yo 1st gen MBP had higher resolution than this.

    Worth noting that it's only a dual core i7.

    1366x768 are rubbish specs.

    So is 1920x1080 on 24 and above monitors.

      That only apply to your experience, lots of peoples set to low resolution which easier to read, even their screen can support higher and design for higher resolution. FHD for a 27" is about right for most peoples, and so are 1366x768 for 15.6", and some even ask for lower setting.

      Although these problem is caused by the Windows OS, but until Microsoft fix that, most peoples prefer lower resolution screen.

        Finally someone who speaks some sense. I almost never use highest resolution on my screen since i could not read the word. .

        •  

          False. You do realise there's been native OS font-size control for the last decade at least? Higher resolution = more work space. If you like a larger font you can increase the font size whilst maintaining increased sharpness. Most modern smartphones also share this feature, only way my dad manages :)

          Higher resolution on any given size is always better.

        •  

          Not all applications support different font sizes, and higher resolution requires more GPU power or requires you to play at non-native res.

          Higher resolution is not always better.

          If you are a Windows user, got to say you have NO experience regarding change of font size. Before you make the answer "False", do you really thinking the others will ignore that enlarge font size function from Windows 3.1 till Win7?

          And before you post your comment, read your post again as"Higher resolution = more work space. If you like a larger font you can increase the font size whilst maintaining increased sharpness." make nonsense, when you talking about more work space, what's different between higher resolution with large font size, compare with lower resolution with smaller font size?

    Deal says external BluRay burner (spells it wrong as well), but the page (and picture) shows a 1.5TB portable WD drive. Which one is it?

        Ahh, you should put this as the main link to the deal instead of just a picture. I clicked both links in the deal and thought the bonus drive was a mistake.

        Entirely unrelated question - what's the weight? And why is it not specified… weight would be one of the main points for me if I was buying an ultrabook :X

          I have updated the link at the start.. I havent posted much to Oz Bargains before…

          I have seen this envy in the shops, i think it is just under 2kg.. Not bad for a 15.6" screen laptop.
