    Is the resolution confirmed to be 1600x900:lol: or 1366x768?:|

    Also, there is isn't much difference between 1333 and 1600 MHz RAM, is there?
    DDR3 is probably what matters...:-D

    Are you sure ?? 1600*900 is only for 17" model as far as I know from engadget and other forum sources. So the model I ordered(15" i5) has 1600*900 ??

    And samsung 550P has 1600mhz ram according to dealer and reviews.

    @rider--one correction in your post:i7 version has 8gb ram,i5 has 6gb ram. You posted the opposite.


    And 550P has 3 ram slots not two like normal laptops :)

    Its not 1600*900 from my sources. Only 17" model has that resolution. Even owners from different countries agree to that. Even engadget says so.

    refer here:NVIDIA GT 650M Benchmarks
    even that owner says its 1366*768

    Yes 15".Local dealer.MRP is 54000 rs . He said he'll give it for 50k.


    I think you can extend warranty to 4 years by paying extra.

    If they dont release 1600*900 for 15" in the US, I am pretty damn sure it wont be 1600*900 in India :p

    Anyway I hope its 1600*900. Maybe a surprise awaits me on tuesday :cool:

    On and all resolution doesn't matter that much people are getting about it. It is the quality of panel, colour gamut, finishing, contrast, luminescence and viewing angles that matter more.
    You can not get more or same FPS to play games in a 1080p screen on native resolution.
