Base features include an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 graphics card with 512MB vRAM (upgradeable to 1GB), either a CD/DVD player or BD player at no additional cost (doesn't burn), and a 16.4" VAOI display with a 1600x900 resolution. The base retails at $809.99, but can be maxed out to over $4000.00 with the addition of extra features.
