I had a 2010 i5 15" HRAG with which I was very happy but decided to sell it for a very good price. I was thinking of replacing it with the 2011 high end 15" but could not justify the steep price (especially here in Europe) and did not want to go for the low end with its "crippled" GPU. So I decided to try out the entry level 13", I was very skeptical considering the "low res" glossy screen and the weak GPU but I still wanted to see for myself. I pulled the trigger a couple of days ago and all I can say is WOW!!! This thing actually feels faster than my 2010 2.4 GHZ i5 in every day tasks, the glossy screen bothers me less than I thought it would and I can adjust the size of the text in the browser to make it smaller like it was on my hires 15". After the initial experience I was still not sure I wanted to keep it considering the numerous reviews I had read criticizing the weak GPU and even mentioning that it was not at par with the puny 320m it replaced. I'm not much of a gamer but a good GPU is important because it contributes to "future proofness" as the OS and day to day programs are increasingly using it. So I decided to try out one last decisive test by firing up HL2 on steam for Mac. OMG, the fps turned out to be better than on the 330m that my previous 15" was equipped with. Sure, you need to factor in the larger HR screen but still! So there you go, I'm really impressed with what they have achieved with this laptop, its a keeper. I also forgot to mention that the keyboard has a new softer touch to it, love it!!!
