Does that include 128GB raid 0?

Though its quite dated as far as GPU prowess, for the purpose you mention it would be an excellent solution provided the battery is still in good shape.

I cant seem to get google to play nice with translating the whole review, but it has strong pros AND cons

The original price point was 1765 Euro according to the review so it seems like a decent value according to today's performance comparisons. Since its for a student, I would definitely look at the battery life

I would be knocking a 100 pound off that price. Your paying $720 Australian dollars for yours off a friend and I bought my girlfriend a vaio sve14a26cgh for $550 off a complete stranger on ebay. My girlfriends has a 14 inch touch screen, windows 8.1, a 7670m gpu and a i5 3210m cpu, pretty much superior in every way i think. I'm not sure if i just got a really good deal or your mates trying to rip you off, but like i said, i would be knocking a 100 pound off that price. You won't be playing the newest games with a 330m either i wouldn't have thought.
I'm back baby!!!
