    Just bought the N55SF-S1128V (french version) to replace my good old FZ21S Vaio (nvidia's gfx chip fault...I'll try to service it since I'm still in the 4 years warranty window).

    Core i7, 4GB, GT 555M Optimus, 750 Go@7200 rpm, 15.6″ Full HD matte screen, no BR player thou.

    Didn't have much time to play with. I removed most of the bloatware, updated bios and couple of drivers (including Intel Graphics 3000) and so far I'm pretty satisfied. It feels robust, looks stylish, fans are quiet and it crunches everything I'm throwing at it. Keyboard (multimedia keys on the left) feels weird at first but I'm getting used to pretty quick (ESC is tricky).

    I will prolly max it to 8GB.

    W7 evaluation test : proc 7.4, ram 5.9, desktop aero gfx 5.5, gaming 6.8, hd 5.9 - Pic

    Edit - Scores with 8GB : proc 7.4, ram 7.6, desktop aero gfx 5.8, gaming 6.9, hd 5.9 - Pic
