ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Dont need a good case just a simple basic one. I take quite a bit of photos for my restoration projects. I will be using Windows 7. Im wanting something fast and easily keeps up with my needs. Would like to be able to watch dvds and video streaming with ease. Will be typing papers, normal school stuff. I wont be playing any games or anything. Will be downloading some music as well, nothing major though. If I can spend less than $700 for something that will fit my needs thats great as well. I look forward to any builds you guys recommend. Thanks in advance.
