    Non reflective screen. Nice. And i thought they aren't using those anymore. Those glossy are totally useless outside.

    and the 8 GB DDR3 is?
    USB 3 could be used for a scratch disk, or the end point of an encode/decode that has been read from the slow hdd, or if the user changes the 640 for a ssd.
    what good is Bluetooth 3 on my phone?
    not trying to sound shitty:)
