If that i7 isn't a QM then it's a dual core CPU... the 660m isn't a horrible graphics chip, but it's not amazing either.

Does "full HD resolution" mean 1080p or 720? My guess is it's the second, which means the 660m should hold it's own fairly well.

You paid about what it is worth. I make it a point to never pay what something is worth. So if you're happy with it that is all that matters. I paid about $150 less for basically the same laptop, but with better battery life and a 900p screen. (Samsung np700z5c-s02u) It will play bf3 on high, so forget the guy who said the 660m isn't great. Not all of us can afford 680m's.

I can be happy that, considering the 3 yr warranty/accident damage protection. :)
