I know the MacBook Pro is an option, but I'd rather stay Windows for now and a bit cheaper, especially with the expensive 512GB SSD option from Apple. I also know there is a good selection of laptops with number pads but I'd rather have a good keyboard and not be all "pushed to the left" while working. Thanks!
