1. One thing is it's hard to find SSD on anything other then ultrabooks except the high end gaming machines. I purchased a laptop with a HD and moved it to the 2nd drive bay and cloned it to a SSD. Now what is out there are HD's with small amount of cache space of flash technology that SSD use. These are called Hybrids it you purcahse the drvie separately. They are are a cheaper alternative to SSD's.
2. Also in your wants there aren't alot of 15 inch laptops with true 1080P resolution but almost all are 720P (1366 x 768).
I did see as ASUS advertised at Best Buy on sure if it has 2 drive bays to add a SSD but it pretty much fills your other needs.
I am having a damn hard time finding what I want.
I am looking for a laptop that has the following
-No Mac (sorry)
-I5 or I7 processor (or equivalent)
-15-16 inch screen size
-number pad on keyboard
-Aluminum Chassis (My current HP has 5 different cracks or broken plastic)
Wants (not deal breakers):
-True HD (1080)
Do I want touchscreen?
The computer that is currently interesting me is the Sony Vaio that was shown at CES. The touch screen 15 inch version. Sony VaioT15.
