After nearly six years, I've finally decided to renew my life by purchasing a new laptop. Portable 14-inch, 8GB, 256GB SSD SATA3, i7-CPU. After I ordered it, I happened to come across a number of negative reviews, mostly complaining about the screen (anti-glare) and so-called lousy resolution (1600x900), terrible touchpad (5-finger), etc. The problem nowadays is that everything is being compared to the state-of-the-art ultrabooks which are way too expensive for me. Many people say that it doesn't look sexy and it still has an old-fashioned vga connector (shame on them). The smaller screens may have higher resolution and better contrast for browsing the web. I need a slightly larger screen so that I can read comfortably if for instance I want to sit downstairs. When in my study room I can hook it up anyway to my fancy 23-inch high-resolution screen so such a shortcoming doesn't matter. Besides, I prefer a solid and dependable machine that will last. For me it's more than sexy enough.
