This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i5-430M processor. The Core i5 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 3 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.26 GHz (up to 2.533 GHz with Intel TurboBoost) and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop. It has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (1066MHz) and can be expanded to 8 GB.  Perfect for multitasking.

The display is a 17.3″ LED backlit LCD display with a resolution of 1600 x 900.  The 16:9 aspect ratio and native 720p support makes it excellent for watching widescreen DVDs. The display is driven by the NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M GPU with 1 GB dedicated video memory and total available graphics memory of 2650 MB. It has support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 2.1 for gaming compatibility.  The chipset is the Mobile Intel® HM57 Express Chipset. Dedicated memory means your system can handle more intense graphical processing operations without slowing down the whole system.

The laptop comes with a 500 GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400 RPM.  This is a large hard drive and should store most everything you want, but it would’ve been nice to have a 7200 RPM drive.  The optical drive is a Dual-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW drive  with support for 6x DVD+R DL; 6x DVD-R DL; 8x8x8 DVD+RW; 8x6x8 DVD-RW; 5x DVD-RAM; 24x24x24 CD-RW.

For networking this notebook comes with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet on the RJ-45 port for wired connectivity.  Hook that up to your gigabit router at home and you’ll be lightning fast.  You also get Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n) for support of the latest wireless networking standard. This laptop also comes with built-in Bluetooth support.

The multicard reader is a 3 in 1 slot that supports SD,  SDHC, MMC cards.  No support for Sony MemorySticks, but hopefully you haven’t gone down that path.  Other ports include a VGA port for an analog monitor, an HDMI port to output your Blu-Ray movies to your HDTV, 4 USB 2.0 ( 1 Chargable USB ), headphone and microphone jacks.  Like all other laptops this one comes with a built-in webcam and internal microphone for Skype video chat. It also has a Express Card slot (34 mm).

The notebook comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.  Other software includes Adobe Reader. 60-day trial version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 also included.

For power it comes with a 6-cell Lithium ion battery (4400 mAh), and a 90 W AC adapter.  The laptop measures 16.2″ x 10.7″ x 1.6″ and weighs 6.3 pounds.  It comes with a standard 1-year warranty.
