I am looking for one cheap (under 850ish) I am currently looking at and completely willing to check out anything else.

I also have another question. I heard that the product key for windows 8 is actually stored in the bios. Would this have any conflict with installing windows 7? Sounds really dumb but I want to know before I go and purchase a laptop with windows 8 on it.

Uhm, what's this going to be used for?

And no, you can install windows 7, i.e. "downgrade" from windows 8, with ease.

You didn't give any specifics on what you're looking for, so it's hard to comment other than one has better graphics and a bigger hard drive. As for windows, I'm not sure what you are asking. If want to install 7 if it comes with 8, you can do that. If you're asking about windows genuine issues they are basically the same with 7 and 8.

Yeah. I am dumb, late night, didn't finish the post. For gaming, preferring intel/nvidia but will take amd/ati if the price is right.
