If the performance is high enough we call them a sports car. So while someone may want to call it something else such as high performance, the words still are used.
As to Windows 8, it was a no-sale for me until folk here and articles brought up Classic Shell (free and makes you wonder why MSFT was being so stubborn about it.)
I'm looking to buy a new laptop that is fairly top of the line. I currently have an older macbook and was looking into the macbook pros, but since I want a smaller screen (I have 13.3" right now), I can't get a macbook pro that size with a quad core i7. I am now considering switching over to windows. I would prefer windows 7, but would give windows 8 a try. Things I am looking for are:
-i7 quad core
-8 gb ram w/ possibility to expand to 16gb
-ssd or the possibility to put one in
-as small/lightweight as possible
-backlit keyboard would be nice
-decent battery life
The only thing I've found so far that looks good is the MSI GE Series GE40 2OC-009US. I would rarely, if ever, play games though, and this is continuously being called a gaming laptop, so I'm not sure if that matters.
any advice would be great!!! thanks!
