Summary: My work bought me this, then few years later, I took the plunge to buy this, after selling my Macbook Pro 17. Well, this is the cheaper one, because I bought it on my own. The work laptop was maxed out and costed around $6k. Yes, Win 8 makes no sense.

Summary: This is probably the most impressive laptop I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Well, actually it IS the most impressive computer I have ever owned. They call it a laptop, it functions like one, it has a built in screen, but it is about as mobile as carrying six bricks along with you.

Summary: This is for those who aren't afraid of commitment. If you want to see how us "2 percenters" have fun on a computer, this is it. Video card is more than awesome, the sound is of Bose quality, the speed and agility is reminiscent of a "Z06".
