My System Specs

Default

Saw this in the Best Buy flyer today: Samsung Laptop featuring Intel Core i5 2520M (QX412) - Black : 14" Laptops - Best Buy Canada

Other than the 1366x768 resolution, it seems to hit all my spec requirements dead-on. Even comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB SSD! Also uses the i5 2520M which has additional virtualization features compared to the i5 24xx's which may be useful since I use VMware a fair bit.

Going to check it out in-store tomorrow and see what I think of it. For $1200 I'd have to say it's definitely up there for best value. The Sony SA is basically $600 for a higher resolution screen, ~5mm thinner and ~1lbs lighter.

The Samsung is basically the size (and probably weight) of my XPS m1330 w/ 9-cell.
