1_What is your budget?
I'd say a max of around 1k, but if there is a great laptop for a bit more thats fine.
2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
i'm a bit torn in this one. A smaller screen is great as its lighter and more portable, but a bigger screen can look a lot better though heavier. All in all, I'd say don't worry about this. To me it depends on the laptop.
3_What screen resolution do you want?
I prefer higher resolution, but I'd say a minimum around 1366x768. This wont be a big factor to me
4_Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Somewhere in between would be ideal.
5_How much battery life do you need?
Minimum of around 3 hours or so
6_Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
I'd love to have the ability to play games like crysis and BFBC2. Medium settings should be good.
7_What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo / Video editing,watching movies, Etc.)
A lot of internet browsing
Listening to music 24/7
Photoshop, Illustrator and Adobe Flash
Other programming applications
8_How much storage (H.D.D Capacity) do you need?
Not too much. Around 250GB should be fine, but the more the merrier
9_If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.
Doesn't matter to me, as long as they have the lowest price and are a reliable company such as newegg.com
10_How long do you want to keep your laptop?
As long as cutting edge applications like Adobe's Creative Suite allow.
11_What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
