and this

though it'll still charge if you suspend to RAM

?
Computers can be in one of four states: in-use, suspend, hibernate and off.

Suspend sometimes known as "suspend-to-RAM" saves your session to RAM (common for closing the lid of a laptop). In this state the computer is still on. But it uses much less power.

Hibernate sometimes known as "suspend-to-disk" saves your session to the harddrive (this is also common). In this state the computer is off and uses no power. It takes longer to hibernate and resume than the other kind of suspend.

Some laptops use "hybrid" a combination of the two.

Most people don't have a need for this feature, but for those that travel, a laptop can essentially be a giant battery pack for recharging their phone a dozen times.

To do this the computer must be on (I was pointing out that it can be in suspend, though not hibernate because then it's not on). However some laptops have a "charge" (bad name, I agree) USB port that remains on even when the laptop is off.

Sometimes this port is yellow, sometimes it has a lightning bolt above it and sometimes it's not marked.

Weird, why did I get quoted on something someone else said?

Wouldn't it be the Dell Inspiron 15R special edition?
Hell if I know. If I were a betting man I'd say it was probably a Latitude of some sort, being that is their business line.

Why, is there something special about the Inspiron 15R?

and its Windows 8 but not Windows 8 Pro.

I just bought 2 Windows 8 Pro upgrades and I had to call Microsoft for some technical advice because I set up 2 laptops as dual boot Windows 7/ Windows 8.

It was pointed out to me that the big advantage of the Pro is that its backwards compatible with older other software and other versions of Windows 8 are not necessarily so.
Totally incorrect. Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro will both run the same software. Windows 8 Pro is not any more compatible with legacy software than the "non-Pro" version of Windows 8. The same goes for Enterprise and other non-retail editions. The difference between the Pro and the "non-Pro" editions is that the Pro edition includes Bitlocker and domain join functionality, basically features that are more commonly used in business professional environments.

The only version that ISN'T compatible with legacy software is Windows RT, which is only available pre-installed on devices using the ARM CPU architecture, aka tablet computers, aka "totally irrelevant to this thread".

You forgot the number one reason to get one with 8 Pro from the OEM... It's the only version that let's you upgrade back to Windows 7! laugh out loud

Would this be worth upgrading to if I sold my Alienware m17x r2, it has a core2duo 2.4ghz gtx 260m SLI (2 cards in SLI mode)? I can sell the Alienware for about the same price to somebody else. I also have a windows 7 ultimate just waiting to be used. Thoughts?

Also would this be worth it or should I just get a desktop? Portability really isn't an issue.

also if you get the Pro you can install Windows Media center on it for free right now.
Calling these companies will only get you sales reps with limited knowledge.

The confusion in this case is mixing up "Windows 8 [Home] vs Windows 8 Pro" OSes with "Microsoft Surface [RT] (ARM-based) vs Microsoft Surface Pro (x86-based)" tablets.

The former is a [small] difference in software and can be easily remedied while the latter is hardware and cannot be altered. To make this even more confusing "Microsoft Surface" used to refer to a coffee-table computer now known as "Microsoft Surface table". You can thank their marketing department.

Windows 8 Pro has a few additional features, that is the only difference versus the home edition. On the other hand, the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet has a traditional laptop/desktop x86 processor while the RT ("RunTime") edition has an ARM processor such as in any smartphone.

Regarding the media center feature, I'll first remind you about XBMC, VLC, SMplayer, etc and second I'll quote Wikipedia:
Quote from Wikipedia :
Support for playing DVDs has been removed from Windows Media Player due to the cost of licensing the necessary decoders (especially for devices which do not include optical disc drives at all) and the prevalence of streaming services such as Netflix. For the same reasons, Windows Media Center will no longer be included by default on Windows 8 as well, but the software (which also includes support for DVD playback) can be added back through the paid "Pro Pack" (for the base version of Windows 8, which also upgrades the system to Windows 8 Pro) or "Media Center Pack" (for Windows 8 Pro) add-ons. Windows 8 will still support third-party DVD playback software.
