Its a solid laptop for the price. The 8850m matches the gtx 750m. Only problem I see is the lack of a SSD and only 4gb of ram.

Latitude huh? That's their business line of laptops, so it should be alright. Swap the HDD for an SSD and maybe add another 4 GB of RAM and you have yourself a nice computer.

Problem with AMD mobile cards is that outside of Alienware machines Enduro doesn't function which means you lose Haswell's biggest draw, the reduced power consumption. Dell makes Alienware though so maybe it will work in this machine as well.

I wouldn't want Enduro considering how AMD leaves the implementation up to the OEM and is worse than Optimus in most setups. Intel+Radeon is already problematic enough to provide drivers for on Windows and Linux.
