    Vista and Win7

    I use a desktop and run it in virtual (VMware Player). But I also have a VMware Player version on an external SSD that I can run on my Toshiba laptop from the USB3 port.

    Windows 8.1

    Acer V5-571G
    It's a really awesome laptop, and Acer seems to think so too because they refreshed it with touchscreens for Windows 8.

    Installed a 128GB ssd and upgraded it to Windows 8, and it really flies.

    I do have IObit's Start menu 8 installed (too cheap to buy Start8), but I almost never use it.

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).

    Acer Aspire 'Ethos' AS8951G.

    i7-2670QM (Sandy Bridge), 8GB RAM, 1.5 TB HDD, 2GB GeForce GT555M, 18.4" full-HD
    screen, 5.1 surround-sound.

    Currently running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit w/WMC.

    This thing takes NO prisoners. I've yet to find anything it can't do.

    And thankfully it does NOT have that (afaic useless) UEFI, OR a touch-screen.

    I don't see it being replaced by a Surface or similar in the foreseeable future.

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/ Windows 8.1 64 bit

    I've got an Asus K55A running Windows 8, I didn't bother upgrading to Pro as so far it does what I need it to. It came with 4GB of RAM but I put another 4GB in so I've got 8GB.
