AGAIN WTF !!!

Blu-ray and 720p screen... Seriously, what is the point.

This would have been ideal for me, apart from the 720p screen

Yeah it's a shame - but at least you can run it on an external 1080p screen!
Yeh thats true, but most have a blu-ray player or ps3.

Why include a laptop with a blu-ray which they are aiming at media, but not include a full HD screen

cost saving I guess, but also it is harder to justify having 1080p on a smaller screen. e.g. most sub 20" TVs have a non 1080p resolution.

And you can tell the difference on a 15" screen?!?!?!?!? Everything I've read suggests that you'd have to have a much, much bigger screen before you can tell the difference - pointless bitch IMHO

There is quite a difference between my 15" 720p screen, and my 15" 1600*900 screen. I imagine 1080p would make a bigger difference again.
To compare a television at 720p, to a laptop monitor, is wrong. You sit much closer to a laptop, so the extra pixels/resolution is more noticeable.

Again, so you can watch Blu-ray discs. They don't mysteriously stop working just because the screen is 720p, ask people with older HD TVs.
Screen resolution 1366 x 768 & 720p HD screen ?
this is not blu ray
"allowing yo to multi-task and switch between applications with a glitch."

yo gotta fix that glitch bro, nuff frankenware innit?
Is this even on special? Doesn't look like it to me
Cold, probably the crappiest i7 processor...
The only other optical drive they could have included would be DVD. DVD resolution is only 404 pixels across. So, if your screen is HD (albeit 720p), Blu ray seems like a worthwhile addition to me in order to use that resolution.
..... Oh yeah, and to view discs you may already have.
Not a bad deal but IMO it needs a beefier GPU if you want to play decent games, kind of lets the spec down.
Not a great price considering there's no dedicated graphics.

You're basically paying £250 for the processor and bluray drive.
I got the Core i5 version of this a couple of months ago with a 750GB HDD for £400, it's a great machine but plenty fast so I wouldn't have paid £150 more for an i7 and BD Drive. I used the saved cash to get an SSD which made a massive difference and a USB 3 caddy for the HDD.

Still if you want those features it's a good deal so voted hot.

Went to John Lewis yesterday, this model does not include a Blu-Ray drive.

Even though it shows on their very inaccurate website and the manufacturer's one, only DVD.
