Overall: I was looking for a laptop that had an nvidia graphics card, a 3rd generation intel iX processor and most importantly an anti-glare screen. And this was the only laptop I was able to find in the market, after a 3 month search both offline and online (Samsung NP300E5X-S03IN was out of stock everywhere), that met all the above requirements. Using glossy screens left me frustrated, as they restrict the usage significantly. And unfortunately none of the laptop makers now a days seem to bother about this aspect. Apple gives its customers a choice between glossy and anti-glare screens on all their models. Having used this laptop for a little over a week now, here's my take: pros: 1. Anti-glare screen 2. Decent build quality (but the hinges are made out of plastic) 3. Soft-touch Chiclet keyboard 4. Wifi has good range (Atheros AR9485WB-EG) 5. Does not become hot after long usage, thanks to the low-voltage processor Cons: 1. Finding it hard to use the mouse buttons on the touchpad 2. Only 2 USB ports (1x2.0 USB and 1x3.0 USB port) 3. No backlight for the keyboard 4. The caps-lock, num-lock LED's are noticeable only in the dark 5. 2.3 kg The GeForce GT 720M graphics card on this laptop is the one that was released on 25th December 2013 and has 192 shader units (CUDA cores) clocked in at 719 MHz as against the previous one with 96 shader units clocked in at 625 MHz. But the memory bus still remains at 64 bit.
