1. What is your budget?
Around $800-1000. Basically I have $1150 dollars to spend though Im taking tax into consideration.

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
A wide with keypad would be much prefered though not needed

3. What screen resolution do you want?
The wider, the better. Though again this is not a huge deal to me.

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
It doesn't need to be very portable. I won't move it often.

Any can be changed to Win7. And I believe they now come with downgrade rights to Win 7 even if Win 8 is pre-installed. My Thinkpad was like that. I called the retailer and they had it sent with Win 7 installed and win 8 disks included.
