Before I tell you the specs let me tell you what i'm looking for. The laptop is for work and for work only. I want it to be fast and and as future proof as possible. I want something that can load programs quick and be able to browse the internet quickly also. This is what I got so far. BTW i was looking at XoticPc.com so I am able to exactly what I want.
Laptop- ASUS N550JV-DB71
Graphics- GT 750M (does not matter very much since I won't be gaming on this at all)
Ram- 16GB DDR3 1600MHz (corsair vengeance)
SSD- 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD (don't need much space since we store most data on the cloud)
OS- Windows 7 Professional
Those are the main components. What do you guys think. Is this good? Any response is great.
The SSD is remarkably fast, I think the Samsung 840 Pro is one of the quickest SSDs you can get. As rpjkw11 said, 16GB of memory is overkill UNLESS you plan on doing any photo/video editing, and some pretty heavy editing at that. So really, what you can do is reduce to 8GB memory which is still very roomy, and maybe get a screen upgrade while you're at it. If you're going get any excessive upgrades, make sure it goes towards the CPU, as that's where the performance is really needed in a work laptop.
