Budget: Max = $700
Size: average (15" approx)
Screen Resolution: 1920 x 1080 ?
Transportable? Yes
Battery Life: Who wouldn't want a long battery life? (Unless that means slower HDD rates?)
Games: No
Tasks Intended: Web Surfing, document creating and accessing, emailing etc.
Storage: 320GB+
Prefered Sites: newegg.com, although totally open to suggestion
Lifetime: 2-4 years
Optical Drive: capable of running and burning DVDs
Prefered Brands: ASUS, Corsair, G.skillz, radeon, and intel. I prefer those brands simply because of what I have in my desktop which is for an entirely different function, however those brands have served me well.
Country: USA

I know next to nothing about laptops and a quite a bit more about desktops. I need a relatively basic laptop that can perform the aforementioned tasks for the lowest price that performs the best.

Basically I'm asking for what your average college kid is looking for in a laptop. If I could keep the alteration of hardware to a minimum and just get a computer w/o having to replace parts, that would be my preference.

Well Corsair,G.Skill and radeon don't make laptops,they make desktop parts.
As for the laptop, Dell Studio 15 would be a good option

Hi there,

I agree with Maziar, the Dell Studio 15 would be a good option. It has a fast processor, 4 GB RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive space. It also has a DVD player.

and this is my personal opinion, this is a killer deal for the price and it comes with a 2 year manufacturers warranty
