Advice on new snowboard

I've been riding for ~8 years and have been looking to get a new board for the past couple years but haven't found the time to actually research a new board.

I've been on the 2008 5150 empress board and am looking for something of higher quality with more speed and better edge hold that will last me a decent amount of time. I tend to stay away from the park and spend my time carving. I classify myself as an advanced intermediate, riding blues and blacks on the east coast. My old board is 144cm but I'm looking to move to ~147. I'm 5'4 ~120lbs and I know that's on the higher end of my size scale but as I said I'm looking to get more speed. If I get a more aggressive board, I may stay somewhere around 144, but again, I'm open to suggestions.

I have four boards in mind so I'd like some feedback on those but I'm also open to new suggestions within the same price range.
2013 or 2014 Ride Baretta
2013 or 2014 Salomon Idol
2013 or 2014 K2 Eco Lite
2013 or 2014 Rossignol Frenemy

Thanks for any help you send my way!
