I know, the strange lack of heat and the guy insisting it wasn't 1080p put me off, wish I'd have gone with my gut and just ordered it. Ah well.

Is the screen matte or reflective?

Also, do you know where I could get an SSD caddy for the ODD bay that would fit this laptop?

Cheers. Well I emailed Amazon on the off-chance that they'd allow me to purchase for £449.99 and they said yes so ordering now Bit of a wait (1-3 weeks) but worth it.

well done, might have to try that sometime with Amazon, anyway the existing DVD Drive is 9mm tall (SU-228), hopefully that will help when selecting a ODD

Hopefully this should do the trick then:

Soooo have you figured out how to get the ODD out of this thing yet? No tear-down videos on YouTube yet. I daren't take all the screws out as I don't want the keyboard to drop out.

By the way when did you ordered this laptop, and when it came to you?

its easy to remove the bottom panel, even if they say its not user serviceable it is, just undo the 10 screws around the bottom edge and use a guitar pick and run around the edge

The model still states X555LJ-DM342H which comes with an Nvidia 920M. Intel HD graphics doesn't have 2GB so i'd be very surprised if you didn't receive the model with Nvidia graphics.

because you see in this order amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21 in a description is written hd graphics and i dont know why 2gb of ram, so is quite wierd, its coming today, so im gonna check and a price should be too high for hd graphics
