Been setting up my wife's birthday present - tagging it into the network and doing general housecleaning, just making it more presentable. She seems very happy; the thing's lightning fast, with 8Gb ddram and a 256Gb SSD, backlit keyboard, high-definition screen. All fine and good, but I was more interested in other stuff. It has USB 2 & 3 ports and both HDMI and standard video ports for adding screenspace. Flip it over, and I can toss in a 2.5 SATA drive should more storage be required. It'd be nice to stick another SSD in there, and you probably could, if you disassemble it and remove the SATA controller, though I've not checked that out.
Still, she's pretty stunned with the thing, so it's better than flowers or a bracelet.
