    I absolutely would downgrade. Maybe it's my personal preference, but Windows 7 is a great OS and Windows8 is unknown yet.

    Agreed. You can get a Windows 8 Upgrade disk for 40 bucks if you have windows 7 too. So I'd get Windows 7 now and an upgrade disk if you ever want to use it.

    Windows 8 is much lighter/faster. I haven't used it but have heard many good things from people I trust.

    Damn really would like a dual 27" setup, but if I go 27" the monitor i'd like one with 2560 x 1440, but they're just to expensive for me. A second 24" will have to do

    I like my laptops small to, rather have good mobility. But if you need power in you're laptop 15 inch is nearly the only way to go, there are very few powerful notebooks out there below 15".

    Agreed. Once you below a certain size it's tough to cram power into the machine. But that doesn't mean they aren't quality machines. If you aren't coding in Java you probably would be fine.

    So it looks like I'm going to go with the $400 acer. Unless someone knows of any better place to get a better deal.

    Also no one said anything about the refurbished ones so I assume I should stay away from those.

    idk what people are talking about. 15.6 inch screens are pretty standard. thats what I have and I couldn't imagine getting a smaller screen.
