what made you go for 2GB SAMSUNG 1333MHz why not 1600? do you have your own ram? and i guess this is for gaming as you have NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680M - 4.0GB DDR5 Video RAM - DirectX® 11

Aye l have 16 gig of CV sitting in my M11x R3 atm, will be swapping out for 8 gig of Kingston hyper X and fitting the CV into the Vertex :) also looking to fit and msata and and maybe two Crucial 256M4 to the mix if l fit a Caddy, however not sure on that atm.

Aye went for the 680 as it is the closest l could get to my 7970 in my desktop atm. WoT and BF3 should run pretty good on my BenQ 2420t :) While having to 1080p monitors will make writing assessment a lot easier.

They could have sent my 15.6" Vortex 3 up to Aberdeen with the same delivery since it's been at at "Awaiting dispatch" since yesterday morning (08:07:38 according to the update email) :)

Enjoy the new laptop, this is the first one I have ever bought (always had work laptops with no real graphics capabilities before).
