Hi, My friend is planning on spending $600 or maybe a little bit more for a new laptop. The type of work he does is making music and he usually likes to run multiple programs at once like FL10 studio, torrents, movie making software, and run multiple tabs without the computer bottle necking and minor gaming from time to time like running Sims 3/Fallout NV/Skyrim. The specs he hopes to have are a quad core with at least 4g of ram and a decent amount of Hard Drive space. We have already found some of our own but maybe you guys can recommend some more options for us. THANK YOU!
