Remember, both Dell and Lenovo have a ton of sales that will save you a good 20-25% off the prices you see.

I'm recommending these because:

- Matte screens without gimmicky touch interface
- Affordable
- Windows 7 Pro
- Lenovo's patented Rapidcharge
- Dell's awesome customer support
- GREAT keyboards and touchpads on both
- Both have carbon fiber reinforced chassis
Quick question WRT the Windows 7 Pro installations from Dell........

Since they're actually downgraded win8 licenses and ship with win8 media... does the initial restore disk application burn a win7 install to the disks or a win8 one?

Anybody know for sure?
