I want to make sure I get the most for my money without over spending on upgrades that won't make much of a difference.
I like the HP ENVY TouchSmart 17t-j100 Quad Edition but my mind isn't made up.
I like a 17in screen
prefer at least 1Tb HHD do I need an SSD?
Is this too much system for me?

Thanks for any help!

That looks like a very nice laptop. The graphics card is decent but not bleeding edge like a 780M but then you'd be getting into 2,3, and 4 thousand dollar heavy duty gaming laptops. For not being that, this should meet a lot of your needs very well. In terms of an SSD, do you need it? Do we need to have anything? You'll definitely want it. It makes your pc perform much faster in terms of boot up time, shut down, opening most applications etc. So if you like performance a lot to the point you'd like to feel that difference then yes you need it. Technically, no one "needs" an ssd unless their schooling or job requires such performance. So in summary, I don't think it's too much system for you. It looks like a pretty decent choice. Have fun!

Thanks,
