    Whats with companies and pairing high end i7s with mid range GPUS instead of vice versa.

    Agreed, it just happens to be the case that CPUs are now generally cheaper than high end GPUs by a considerable margin. Nonetheless, while we were reviewing the Lenovo X700 (the review goes live Monday) I suggested Lenovo to include a faster GPU on more expensive models which makes more sense in a gaming machine than keep adding faster CPUs, more storage or RAM. Hopefully in the next iteration.

    Yeah the GPU for that price tag is absolutely appalling, even the cable management could be something they can improve upon.

    They couldn't have designed that Dexter box set better :)

    I feel it necessary to mention that the Breaking Bad box set is also out, and I ain't dissing Dexter, but I know which one I'd pick.....
