320GB 5400rpm would do, but the more the better, especially if its with 2 hdds.

Need only Dvd-rw, but would take blue-ray.

12_Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
Id like in this order:Toshiba,Asus,Msi. i wouldent like acer, hp, compaq.

There are lots of better options than that MSI model
SAGER NP8760 would be a good alternative.
