    You know they're the same company now, right? Can't you just call them and have your programming package changed to the stations you prefer?

    Don't know how much is Zotac and how much is Win8. Win7 should still boot fast, but a lot will depend on having a good SSD.

    The PSU that comes with it puts out 19.1 volts and 2.1 amps, so about 40 watts. Like I said, you could power it off almost anything.
