The LCD is a high quality 1080p display which makes sense as there are a pair of mobility HD4870’s in Crossfire inside this beast.  Unfortunately, those cards will lead you to discover something horrible about the state of AMDs mobile driver, as AnandTech realized when testing this laptop.  Check out this 12lb powerhouse here.
