Looks very nice but the Reviewer left out one very important aspect of the Review....

What OS was used or Installed...???

there is no mention if there is a Pre-Installed OS or you need you own?

All of the tests were in Windows 7 Professional x64, sorry for the omission.

Were you able to play 1080p videos with it? When I was doing the review for this on Neo, I could play 720p fine but I couldn't play any of my random 1080p clips on it.

What video player and video file were you using?
