I just purchased an Asus Zenbook UX301 DH71T:

Amazon.com: ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (Blue): Computers & Accessories

Intel Core i7-4558U processor (2.8GHz - 3.2GHz turbo)
8GB DDR3L 1600 MHz SDRAM
256GB SSD (2x128GB RAID 0)
2560 x 1440 (WQHD) Touchscreen, Sharp IGZO
2 x USB 3.0 port(s)
1 x micro HDMI
1 x mini DisplayPort

This will be my main workstation for the next five months, since all of my bigger servers can't ship on the container until after my visa is approved (90 days) and then takes another 6-8 weeks to receive.

Mike

2560 x 1440 on a 13.3-Inch, that's extreme, IMHO.
I've got a 13.3" and a 1920x1080, and it's a bit too much for my old eyes.

Nice I may have to put my AT on a full wall. For no other reason than it's cool.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Would you mind sharing your VPS details? I am curious as I am looking to move away from my PC back to my Mac and have not found a good solution that I like for this yet....

Thanks

I have two VPS that I can run. One at speedytradingservers.com which has been great. That one has 2 Xeon cores and 1.5GB RAM. I'm testing the other with my broker. I connect via the remote desktop connection from Microsoft for Mac.

I trade the ES, and have 4 tick and volume charts running some automation (but most of my trading is manual). I haven't seen my CPU usage greater than 11%, and the memory usage is fairly constant around 1.1GB. I don't use this for back testing or optimization, only trading. The nice thing about a VPS is you can scale it up or down depending on one's needs.

If you're considering using a VPS, I'd suggest trying speedytradingservers. It's very easy to setup and inexpensive to experiment with.

EDIT: I should note too, that I like using the Mac laptops because they have mini-display ports, which are necessary to run higher resolution monitors like the 2560 x 1440 (27 in) or 2560 x 1600 (30 in). Asus ROG laptops have display ports, but among other things, I like the battery life of the Macbook Airs.

All the manufacturers are doing that these days. I will be using Windows 8.1 scaling obviously for the text and icons.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I'll be very interested to see how fast NT runs on that Laptop with Win 8 ...

I suspect it might be slow .. mine is (Samsung S9)

As most new laptops these days come with 8 it is a tough choice.

p


Can't you by a new machine with 8 and just plow it with your Win 7 pro disc? It will be harder and
harder to find cool machines with 7 on them in the near future, I would think.

I don't want to on 8 for a while ... a long while

You can rewrite a machine default from Win8 to Win7. Most laptops still come w/ Win7 discs as standard.

I have an HP Folio 9470M w/ a 500GB HDD and 128GB MSATA SSD, 8GB RAM, i7-3667U running Windows 8 Pro 64bit. I also have a custom (read: homemade) desktop with a 256GB Intel SSD running two i7 quad cores with 16GB of RAM and an additional 1TB storage disk with an additional GEforce Nvidia card.

Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.
