    Samsung Series 5 NP550P5C-T01US is what I was looking at, no touch screen though.

    go for Asus or Apple and dont fall for another shit like Samsung,Lenovo bcoz these companies don't manufacture anything all they do is outsource.

    not much difference actually...win 8 can run on any laptop....in worth case you need to install some drivers manually...

    just go for anything you like most...

    I have a Macbook Pro, and I even think it's a bit overpriced.

    I'm an IT-technician and I would definitely recommend Lenovo (IBM), Asus, HP and Sony. Don't go for Dell and Fujitsu Siemens, they are cr*p. Don't discuss with me, I know it from my job experiences. :)

    For the price of most Mac laptops you can get a much powerful non-Mac. You are paying for a thin, light computer when you are buying a $2000 Mac...

    Whatever you buy, just make sure it isn't HP or ACER.

    Basis:
    My brother has been working as consultant for HP for many years now.
    Every ACER product I ever owned has always had problems, people I know also have trouble with ACER.

    I strongly disagree. Apple computers bring much more to the table then just appearance.

    Agreed.

    I used to think they were overpriced as well but when I compare my Samsung series 5 laptop with my wife's Macbook Pro, which is 2 years older, I can tell immediately the difference in quality. Mine is already having all sorts of problems within less than a year of purchase whereas hers is working almost as good as the day it was bought.
