    This is the later-2011 model, with just a few design tweaks and spec changes.

    Specs:
    i7-2670qm
    Radeon HD 6770m
    750 GB HDD
    8 GB ram
    1080p screen, 15 inch
    bluray

    Design: finally, a great laptop design that doesn't ooze Apple!
    Keyboard: a real joy to type on, island-style
    Touchpad: the best I've used on a non-Apple laptop. The latter 2011 edition has separate mouse buttons,
    an improvement over the single button touchpad of early 2011
    Display: 1080p matte. Need I say more?
    Performance: 8-threaded i7. Graphics capable of running BF3. Awesome.
    Heat/Noise: not really a problem. Fan is fairly loud when it runs.
    Battery life: it's a desktop replacement, maybe 4 hours on extended battery
    Software: Windows 7 at its best.
