Seems to have very similar specs to dell's new XPS 15z. I just wish they would stop putting in higher end dual cores and start working on adding more quad core systems.

Why do you need a quad core for a laptop? If you need that much processing power, you are probably already running a Core i7 2600k @ 4.7ghz anyway. Besides you can pay extra to put those faster processors in if you want. The quad core will only make sense on a laptop when the price difference will be very small compared to dual core i5 systems with hyper-threading. If anything, these laptops should ship with an SSD and an i5 rather than the obsolete mechanical drive and an i7.

I would need a quad core laptop if I want to work with heavy photoshop design like 32-bit, 3d models. Since photoshop is heavily cpu based it would greatly speed things up. I know openGL is a big factor for rendering the models, but its not responsible for wrapping images around the model and drawing directly on the surface of the model with brushes and filters, etc.

How many rootkits are they preloading onto these babies? I just opened a new credit card after closing my compromised account. I bet they can't wait to throw my info to scammers.

AVOID SONY LIKE THE PLAGUE

You know it's a sad day when the users agree with the guest posters, but Sony just can't be trusted anymore. They've been proving that over and over again.
