I am looking for the best premium responsive theme that can handle a news - style website. Your opinions would really be appreciated.
Features that are important:
1. The theme should be fast, with clean, professional, efficient coding - not one of those that looks cool at the expense of function.
2. Support and updates from a company that is not going anywhere anytime soon.
3. As ad-ready as possible - special features for ads would be great.
4. A dynamic content slider, or something similar.
I currently have a few candidates, but am wondering what other people out there think. I don't have much experience with purchasing themes, but my next project requires something that runs very solid and is mobile capable.
