Acer V3-551-8664, came with windows 7 and made the mistake of upgr...... though seldom realize I am on 8 - use classic menu and seldom think about eight since it hides over on the right :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Toshiba Satellite P300.

Windows 8 is it's third Windows OS, and running better than ever.

Getting the itch to upgrade the lappy soon though. Maybe a present for myself at the end of the year.
