This model comes with the built-in Wi-Fi (dual-band), Bluetooth and WiDi adapters, the built-in shock protection for the hard drive that has a role to retain information if the laptop drops on the ground (it is a default option for a business laptop). There is also a TPM 1.2 and data encryption option, as well as the built-in Intel Anti-Theft support. The built-in 45Wh battery will provide some 6.5hrs of average usage, which is a good result for the model of this category. This laptop has shown what can be expected from the business models of the last generation, and that manufacturers such as Lenovo, Dell and HP got a serious competition.
Positive: Very quality design; Built-in protection from falls to hard drive; aluminum and carbon fiber casing; docking station; excellent spill-proof keyboard.

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.
A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5000 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
