I am currently on a windows 7 toshiba Satellite (5 years old ) . Also how good would the ips 1080p screen be for watching dvds and blurays on the 15" screen?

Their site is kinda confusing on that, says 768 and 1080p. If it's 1080p will be great for viewing. Reviews say it has a small battery though.

1PM here, central time. See, your site says the same thing. Just make sure whatever you buy has the 1080p panel.

Of course would never buy non ips or non fhd. I can get the better (N551)but not as portable and quite heavy or I can get the cheaper not that good (better than my Toshiba) N550 version .
p.s. if I start speaking jibberish or not being able to spell then tell me and I will go yo bed.

That'd be a good decision.
