Re: What does it run?
"You clearly haven't used Autocad or any sort of video rendering applications. They will rip through that laptop and make it cry like a small child with a skinned knee."
I've seen AutoCAD running with perfectly acceptable performance on a (laptop) Core i7-powered NUC. I use Visual Studio with large projects on a laptop with a dual-core Core i7, and it's fine, performance-wise. If people use MacBook Pro's for video editing, then these laptops will be fine.
