    HWT - nice videos, thanks! Looking forward to a thorough review. Also read your review of the NP8250... wondered if I could ask you (and anyone else who wants to chime in) a question.

    I'm looking for a machine for gaming & development.... wondering if you could give a subjective recommendation between the NP7330 and the NP8250.

    The $ delta between my chosen configs would be about $600.

    I'm trying to figure out if the 780M & extra RAM in the NP8250 are worth it, or if the portability of the NP7330 wins out. Same processor (4800) and same drives (SSD & 1TB HDD).

    Thanks in advance!

    -Colin

    first, apologies if this messages winds up being posted twice... looks like my initial question didn't wind up in the thread.

    HTW: thanks for the videos and the excellent reviews. looking forward to seeing more about the np7330.

    i was wondering if i might be able to get your (or anyone else who might like to chime in) subjective impression of the np7330 vs the np8250. (and thanks for the nice review of that machine, as well.)

    i'm looking for a gaming & development machine. the $ delta of the configs i'm looking at is about $600... and i'm weighing whether the 780M and extra ram on the np8250 is worth it, or if the added portability and lower price of the np7330 win out.

    would really appreciate any thoughts.

    thanks,
    colin

    Thanks for the quick review. The LCD info is really great.

    Just wondering, can this laptop output to 2 external monitors simultaneously?

    HT, you said it suffers from kb ghosting, can you tell me if these key combo works when you get a chance?

    Q+W+D or Q+W+Spacebar and W+E+Spacebar

    Yes. But I expect it to be fixed with a BIOS update soon. There were similar issues with the new released other laptops.

    Those work fine.

    It's the Q+W+E + Z,X,C,V, or SPACE that don't work.
