I bought this laptop just before going on a three week cruise. I wanted something with enough power to process several thousand raw photos through Lightroom, Perfect Photo Suite and Photoshop.
It doesn't have quite the power of my desktop but is quite adequate at handling these tasks. The 750Gb HDD is big enough for 200+ Gb of photos with room left for music and movies etc.
The screen is good for photo editing and the width means that side menus don't impinge on the image being processed.
The mouse pad is a pain - with Windows 8 I'm constantly invoking the Windows Charms bar.
(A Google found a possible answer.)
