Good to see that the features are getting better for standard laptops!
This might be able to topple Apples one saving grace on the macbooks,..The battery life:p
While these notebooks have a lot of good features and a good warranty,the deal breaker for me is the resolution.
I won't buy a 15" notebook that isn't FHD 1920x1080.
Heck,my 10.1" netbook has the same resolution as these.
There's no mention of USB 3.0,the sound card or the wireless network card?
So far,too much is left unsaid.
