    Not really. There is quite a noticeable performance difference according to notebookcheck.

    "The performance is depending on the used version of the card (see above). The 3DMark 06 performance for example ranges from 8857 points (Lenovo Ideapad Y570) to 13000 points (MSI GX780R). The GT 555M in the Lenovo therefore is just a fast GT 550M. The average GT 555M (with 144 shaders) is positioned in the lower high end class and enables users to play demanding games in high settings at 1366x768."

    The GT 555M with the GDDR5 is noticeably lower than the GT 555M with DDR3.

    From my experiences, the GT 555M with GDDR5 performance-wise is exactly the same as my GT 550M with DDR3. The GT 555M with DDR3 performs noticeably better (almost 50% better from notebookcheck's benchmarks), but only comes in bigger laptops.

    The GDDR5 model has almost the same bandwisth as the GDDR3 model, with 2/3 the shaders, therefore, it is on average about 35-40% slower.

    so how does So 96 shader GDDR5 128-bit bus 550m compare to a modestly overclocked 6550/5650? I read that the overclocked 6550 can beat 540m at stock... If that's the case, is the performance of this laptop going to be significantly better than the higher end 3820tg(with i5-480m or better) or the 3830tg?

    The 96 shader GDDR5 555M is basically just a 550M if ever so slightly faster. A 550M I believe is around 10% faster than a 540M at stock.

    If the 6550 overclocked just barely beats a 540M, the P330 would still be around 10% faster if it's using the worse version of the 555M (There's no confirmation of this one way or another, everyone's just assuming it because of the size of the laptop).

    If those numbers are correct, then HOLY S***.

    is it still crippled by the horrible 1366 x 768 resolution or do they offer a higher resolution display option?

    I guess it would be nice to have a 1600*900. I checked the Korean LG website and so far they only listed 1366*768 (which I think is still ok for a 13.3"). You can always hook up an external at home too.

    1366 x 768 is acceptable for a 13" screen. 1600*900 would be good. Not too fussed though either way.
