Samsung commodity craptop. 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, 17 inch screen, blah, blah, blah. Having had a Chromebook in my mind I stuck to that pricepoint and that's what I spent. Going from a 9 year old laptop with 512MB Ram and an abacus for a processor, its night and day.
Still don't like Win8, so I'll probably wind up with a Linux dual boot. I just have to get to a store and get some blank DVDs so I can make some restore discs incase I mess something up.
