I have 3 suggestions.

The first is the ASUS U43JC Bamboo at $999. It has Blu-Ray R, and an i5 processor. Here are the specs:
Screen
14" WXGA (1366x768) HD
Processor
2.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-450M Processor
RAM
4 GB DRAM 1066 MHz
Storage
500 GB HDD 5400 RPM
Operating system
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

The second is Acer Aspire 7552 at $799. It also has the Blu-Ray, but has a 2.1 AMD processor. Specs:
Screen
17.3" (1600x900) HD
Processor
2.1 GHz AMD
RAM
4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz
Storage
500 GB HDD 5400 RPM
Operating system
Windows 7 Home Premium

The last one is Samsung QX410 at $799. It has a 14 in screen, 2.66 i5 processor, and 640 GB hard drive. Here are some specs:
Screen
14" (1366x768) HD
Processor
2.66 GHz Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 460M (3 MB)
RAM
4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz
Storage
640 GB HDD 5400 RPM

I think these are all great machines, that should be able to do all you need it to, and more. What do you think?

Agree tentatively with this. Question- maybe there should be an article or something about this but.....
for some reason when looking for a decent gaming laptop, everyone assumes x720, x768 , x800 are good enough..
but if you are also using the unit for work, that just aint gonna cut it. x10something should be a minimum.

WindowsTeam_Kevin always post laptops of those specs at a high price idk y? but the matter that he puts different computers you can see the general way maybe those are the laptops the op likes and can do some research on which would give better performance. you can find those laptops for cheaper. but definitely yes if your talking about resolution. but shwetanshu put the resolution to 1920x1080 in the config and price. 1920x1080 adds better visual when doing multiple things at the same time like surfing, docx, sql +, and excell at least for me, the better the resolution the better i use my space with.
