    U mean switching between the laptop display and an external monitor? This was the cheapest laptop I could find with a gen3 core i3. With the SSD I'm happy with it. I'm still surprised how cheap brand new hardware can be, this doesn't feel like the sturdiest build quality but it's sitting on a table/desk 90% of the time so should be ok. The only weird thing I have been trying to figure out is why the display won't dim. It may be that it doesn't.

    No as far as I know eval won't work. But RTM build 9200 isn't that hard to get The Official Windows 8 Repository.

    No switchable graphics is an AMD term where you have two graphics cards, one integrated and one discrete, and you switch between them on laptops for battery saving purposes.

    Search for adjust screen brightness at the start screen. Or on the desktop click the power icon. Should be an option there to adjust or dim.
