^^ nice looking laptop, the only thing i hate about sony is that they COST SO MUCH to get fixed, and if it's still under warranty, then you have to send it away to get fixed for 2-5 months
Yea, it's a SAmsung, lol.
I love Sonys but for the price they just never seem quite worth it.
SO far so good. I need to get used to using am Optimus based laptop, and how to get it to recognize games... Mechwarrior online took some configuring.
Yea, as I said, the ultrabooks were super tempting for me too, but after I sat down and considered the sacrifices in price, performance and options, especially compared to laptops like this samsung, it didn't make sense to me.I was thinking a samsung ultrabook next year, we will see tho.
HUGE HUGE samsung fan here..
Antenna pro- holy shit look at that directional antenna pointed at the wall. Where are you going in such a hurry soldier
He's on your block, stealing your wifi. That's a hell of an antenna.
0007. It's not awesome tbh, but I am not super sensitive to monitors, so I don't care much.
Bummer. I don't see any kinds of numbers on the box that might indicate which it has, like a part number, manufacture date etc,Thanks for checking. The 0007 is supposed to be better than 0006. I just returned mine, then drove to a different town and purchased another. Still got 0006, I cant catch a break.
My new laptop, replacing an Alienware m11x r1.
Core i7 3635qm (2.4ghz)
Nvidia GT 640m (kepler)-- Optimus
1tb hdd with some kind of SSD cache.
Win8, N/Bluetooth etc.
It has a side-profile on par with some of the thicker ultrabooks, but retains the DVD drive, for what that's worth.
I had been considering an ultrabook for some time, specifically the Asus u500. But once they announced it would cost $2500 with the nvidia gpu, I said F that. Then, today Best Buy had a few of these openbox, but never actually used (some company bought them and then returned them unused). $870, a freaking steal.
Today I will post a picture of my Y500 that came in the mail yesterday... I haven't actually had a chance to become acquainted with my laptop because it is at home and I am at school, but from what I've seen online this thing looks amazing... hope it feels that way too.
Only thing my Y500 is missing is an MSATA SSD, any ideas for what I should get to put in it? I'm thinking about going cheap and just getting a 64GB cache drive.
