In its 15.6" chassis it sports a full HD display with 1920×1080 resolution and a LED backlight screen. Under the hood we've got a 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 4GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GT550M/ 2GB VRAM with Optimus technology. Taking a look around the unit, you'll find a DVD burner, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and THX Tru Studio Pro technology in its 4 speakers and 1 subwoofer. It's not often you'll find such a large machine with only two USB ports, but they are 3.0, so they'll be super fast.

The other unique feature that this notebook offers is the two huge vents around the back. The issue with making the "thinnest 2nd Gen Core i7" is heat - that CPU is HOT!!! So it's only expected that they've taken serious steps to cool it down.
