Chunky!



1366x768, 2GB good. Matte-screen would have been even better. And so would a 128GB SSD option in place of the 500GB, rather than the existing options: Why even bother with 1024x600 and 1GB. It is 2012 for heavens sake!

AMD Brazos still seems like a clear winner compared to these.

And when that user upgrades it to 4GB they are going to have to reformat just to make use of it.:shadedshu

There is no reason at this point to not put a 64-bit OS on it from the beginning. Basic use or not.

If you are smart to upgrade your ram to 4Gb you must be capable of reformatting your pc. <-- will not be surprised if they give this excuse

Sure, but it is still a hassle. Upgrading to 4GB of RAM is a 30 second process, reformatting can take hours.:ohwell:

Or perhaps they think you are going to install a SSD anyway. Whatever the reason, they are certainly dumb/douchey/whatever enough not to install the 64bit to begin with. Let's hope "feedback" from us reach their medically deaf ears.
