Depends what you want it for, that one is a average-high performance gaming laptop.

One thing you may not like is the resolution...I've seen laptops with that resolution and I couldn't stand it, but some find it okay. If you can, I'd find a laptop with that resolution to see if you like it.

1336x768 has been the standard resolution across the vast majority of laptops for like, five years (or, basically since they moved to widescreen). Are you sure you're not reading it wrong?

I don't know what the exact resolution of the laptop I was using. I haven't bought a laptop/monitor that isn't 1920x1080 since...
