So I'm Trying To Find The Perfect Laptop... And I kinda did, but there's one fatal problem

Besides that, I'm definitely going with the Xtopic thing. I can't find anything else that nice. I'm still not sure what the Matte vs Glossy screen means for me, or if it even matters. I'm normally indoors and can control my light settings, so I don't think it matters.
Anyone want to add anything?

In my home, all of my monitors, and with one exception, all of my TV's are matte. I have very large windows, when the sun shines in, they are extremely hard to see. Now, that may not be the case for everyone. So check them out, and get what works for you.
With the laptop you are looking at, avoid strange quantities of ram. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, etc will put your machine into 'dual chanel' mode, and you will get better performance...
I actually need to swap out the ram in my laptop for the same reason, just been busy with other things.

fyi, if you have 4 ram slots, you can have a config like 3GB RAM and still have dual-channel. A friend's machine had 512MBx2 in one channel, and I added 1GBx2 in the other, and according to cpu-z it had 3GB running in dual-channel. However, with a laptop that's usually not an option.
