The HP TouchSmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition is a serviceable power user laptop. It can speedily run through the tasks that you'd need a high powered processor and graphics for, like video and photo work, graphics arts, and light gaming. However, our current Editors' Choice for midrange desktop replacement laptops the Asus N550JV-DB72T has all this, plus better sound, 3D gaming performance, nicer screen with a wider viewing angle, and is only about $20 more expensive. This means that the TouchSmart 15t-j100 is good, but not good enough to knock the Asus off its perch. The TouchSmart 15t-j100 should be on your short list of systems to try out, but there are ultimately better choices out there for battery life, portability, and power.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
