I'd say it's overkill for most folks

I'd think something with an I5 processor and 500 GB hard drive would handle almost all of most folks' needs for about half the cost. Why do you think you'd need all this?

I'd use it all day long cause I'm a programmer and I'd need speed and performance

I agree with the others, preferably I'd go with the i-5 unless you plan on gaming. Toshiba makes several units with the i-5 and they are considerably less money than the unit you cited and the performance will/would be right up there.

Looks like what a gamer would buy.

That's the idea I get from looking at it.
