I have a new laptop. I feel like such a king.

I'd hit that.

I recently purchased a laptop for college. It’s a Lenovo T420 and, despite looking like a 1990’s era business laptop, it’s one of the smoothest-working rigs I’ve used. I mean, the thing was built to take a beating, and sure shows it. 

At any rate, here are my specs:

  • Intel i7 2620M Processor clocked at 2.7 ghz (dual core)
  • 8 Gigs of DDR3 Ram
  • 500 Gig Harddrive
  • NVidia NVS 4200M Workstation Graphics Card with NVidia Optimus
  • Fingerprint Scanner (YEAH!)
  • 720p webcam
  • Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN Wireless Card (I get reception in the basement now. Yeah.)
  • 14″ 1600×900 HD+ Anti-Glare Widescreen
  • 9 cell battery with an additional “Slice” battery (The slice battery clips onto the bottom of the laptop. Without it, I’ve gotten up to 11 hours of battery. With, 30.)
The whole thing cost me roughly $1500, before warranty and extra battery. I feel like this is going to be a fantastic “college laptop.”

    Wow! That’s what I call a laptop :D And 11 hours without / 30 hours with is truly amazing! Mine goes maximum 4 hours before it’s dead .. :/

    I thought the intel i7 was all quad core?
