Hi! I'm purchasing a new laptop and I'm having trouble deciding which to get. I use my computers for web-browsing, email and messaging, the office suite (mostly word and excel), watching videos, downloading and listening to music, photo storage, and the occasional Sims 3 game .
I want an ULTRABOOK, and I've been hoping to keep it under or around $1000, but I've looked at one's as high as $1200.
The two options I've pretty much narrowed it down to run windows 8 and are touch capable (but touch is not important to me).

-500GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
-External DVD/RW drive
-802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth(R)
-USB, HDMI slots, etc.
Comes to $1112.00 after tax and discounts.
Dell Inspiron Ultrabook 15z (TOUCH)
