Time to check out the product page and let's learn more about the processor

I would easily be all in if it had a Bluray drive with a weak video card...so close but no cigar.

Is this a touch screen? Can I choose win7 64bit option?

I bought a similar 15" Dell and found there is an adapter you can get to replace the DVD with a 2.5" drive. Installed an SSD and put the OS on it and used the stock drive for storage. Talk about a fast computer. You can probably do the same with this PC.

Install Start8 ($4.95) or Classic Shell (free) and you turn Win 8.1 into super fast Win 7.

is the RAM upgradeable on this? A bit of googling shows conflicting info.

I have had this type of laptop for about a year or so. I use it roughly 5 hours a day. Been through 2 hard drives, one being my fault one being Dell's. It has good speed, besides the HD it has very good durability. Screen is great. I got mine for less than this, though I only have 6GB RAM and a little less motherboard... I would recommend it for light gaming, surfing and vid watching.

Yes, I have one of these and put 16gb of Crucial in it. It's a nice, fast machine. My biggest compliant is the non back lit keyboard. I got a wireless one which solves the problem of using it in half light while watching TV.

How do you (turbo up to 2.6 GHz ) or is it already running at 2.6 GHz?

Looking for a portable machine that I can do video editing with. Is the i5 fast enough for this. Mostly for GoPro stuff. Also, how much would this machine list for?

Any other software preloaded? Office? Adobe Acrobat? etc?

There's more to it than the processor, and I'd like to hear from others.

Business and home machines share video and OS memory. I was stuck with a standard desktop unit at a non-profit org and tried to edit 60 minutes of video. As soon as I hit the 30 minute mark, the unit would go all wonky, as there was no longer enough memory to go around.

Later I got a used "digital workstation" designed for 3D modeling and it had a massive video processor with it's own memory and things were fine.

Am I the only one who gets along well with 8.1?

It has a low-end graphics chip(Intel) in it, so it won't do well at all for the purposes you stated above.

It will do fine for Internet surfing, email, Microsoft Office and light gaming.

Has anyone gotten one of these specifically for Linux? These are good prices, but I don't want Windows 8 and don't want to PAY to get Windows 7.

Yes, when the family gathers around the laptop to enjoy movies...they better be bluray!

Wow thats a slow processor. Its almost the same speed as my first generation i7 q740, and that laptop is a dog for any real work.
Fine for surfing and email. Try to do any sort of CAD or video editing and the machine slows to a crawl.

cpu benchmark wise- today's "fast" systems are around 8000-10000

Can I get this computer with a Windows 7 with a 32 bit processor?

What does "Win 8.1 - (Your Choice") mean? Your choice of what? Win 7?

Your Choice is just in reference to the color. Sorry for any confusion.

Is it too difficult to include "of color?"

I bought one of these new about a year and a half ago. Even though mine has the i7 chip instead of the i5 in this offer, I have been very disappointed with the performance. It is very slow and hangs frequently. The networks, both wired and wifi are slower than most laptops available and the wifi is not even dual band. Other than the screen, everything about it is "stripped down". A backlit keyboard is available from Dell but it is quite expensive. Graphics are slow, no hardware support for virtual machines or security, etc. The battery lasted about 3 hours at first, but now I am lucky to get an hour. I only paid $800 new.

We are in the middle of Tennessee's tax free holiday and I was charged tax for this purchase. How do I get a refund?

I read good things about refurbished computers, but when I got the Dell, it was defective. Luckily, Woot! was cool about the return and I bought a refurbished HP (also from Woot!) that totally rocks and is not defective.
