I bought a refurb Lenovo Y510p with SLI. Although if I had known they were employing locked bios I would not have bought it. Would have gotten an Asus instead, even if no SLI, I don't support this business models of locking hardware that you purchased with your hard earned money.

Alienware M14xr1 256 ssd Cruicial, Seagate 750 Gb came with it, 2nd gen Core i7 Quad, Intel 3000 gpu on board processor, Nvidia GT555M discreet, usb 3.0 2 on right, 1 usb 2.0 on left, I guess the best performance I have seen from this is encrypting a non system drive for backups of 4TB in just under 10 hours.

- - - Updated - - -

And my go to is a Mabook pro 13 mid 2009 ssd sata2 speeds running parallels just because we can! The ssd made it work better than new and the cloning process for the drive was flawless through Superduper. The nice thing with the MBP is that they used the same ram in the imacs of the same generation so when I upgraded I upgraded the wife's imac to 8gb. BTW the imac 21.5 second drive 1tb base processor for the late 2009's still runs decent may try a ssd upgrade if I dont look into a new mac pro.
