If you're going to go with the one in the first link, do the following: -Remove the mSATA drive they include for $75, and get one of these: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BQ8RKT4/ http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BQ8RHMO/ (literally takes a minute to install yourself) -Save $25 and go with the standard DVD burner, unless you intend on buying Blu-Ray playback software (since it won't come with any and you NEED paid software to play Blu-Ray's) -Buy a copy of Windows 8.1 somewhere (assuming you don't have a key already), since it doesn't come with an OS
And that all leaves you with an extra mSATA and HDD slot if you ever need to expand storage.
And again, that's assuming you want the 15" version, since there's also a 17" version of that same laptop.
Thanks again, i do prefer the 15'' to the 17'' that is awesome. Any other upgrades i should look at?
