My review machine came with 6GB of DDR3 1066 MHz RAM, but you can specify up to 8GB if that’s not enough for you. Storage comes courtesy of two 500GB Seagate Momentus HDDs spinning at 5,400rpm, handy for storing all those Blu-ray rips. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit keeps everything marching in step.

As the PCMark numbers show, across the board the N73 is one of the best performing laptops we have tested and I failed to find a productivity task it didn’t chew up and spit out with ease.
