I have not had to use a CD in years, even buying boxed software you often have the option of downloading the installer and using your boxed key without issue. The only reason my desktop has an optical drive is for ripping blurays, I honestly can't remember the last time it was used to install software or games. Obviously my own needs probably differ from yours but I imagine more people would want an optical drive as a precaution "just in case" rather than because they use it daily.
Also I am blown away by that resolution, suddenly I feel a bit shamed with my 2560x1440 panel lol. Hopefully this is a sign of great things to come and we will see higher resolutions coming to desktops very soon. It is an absolute shame to have such powerful gpus like we have today and be limited to such pitifully low resolutions. 2560x1440/2560x1600 is no stress for even a single high end gpu, never mind SLI/Crossfire.
The GT 650M should be enough power for most things, hell of a step up from HD 4000, but isn't it basically going to match the new GT 640? I mean 384 shaders from GK107 and 128bit bus with DDR3? Although the core/shader speeds are probably lower. Still...you wanna find the best balance of performance and power efficiency, cant imagine that display is as efficient as the usual suspects.
