Get a nice top of the line Apple MacBook Pro.
At the office we are testing an Asus K55N that you see on amazon, newegg for about 380. One machine was bumped to 8GB (20 bucks?) and another was fitted with 16GB RAM (120bucks) and a 1TB Hybrid HDD (99 bucks) so for not much you can get a respectable laptop.
Parting tip. Be sure to look at Classic Shell (free) if you feel the need for it on Windows 8.
