i7-2720QM
GT450 2GB
8 GB RAM
blue-ray player
and
1920x1080 LED backlit screen

No games yet, but the BD movies look fantastic.
It is for my wife and she is happy so all is fine.

I just wanted a machine that would be suitable for a few years to come.
So far so good.

    I have been thinking of ordering one of those. I don't need the i7 though. Been trying to find out the battery life difference between i5 and i7.

    I am not sure that it is much. The dynamic speed/core shifting is pretty good.
    On battery often it is running one core at low speed.
    The screen is great. It is gloss, but once you get over that the resolution and color depth are very good. (remind me of my old 21" 1200x1600 CRT)
    I went with it because of the limited options. I wanted good decode and the larger cache.
    Yes, it was over $1,400.
