14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I'm required to buy the most up to date windows OS from my school plus Microsoft Office and many other programs so program bundles are of no use to me.

School Requires
4gigs of ram
320g hard drive
I'd prefer 6 gigs of ram and a very good wireless internet card.

  1. For performance I would get a asus g73 , but for longer battery life but less performance MSI GE620-021US. If you don't care about size Alienware m11x
  2. g73 is 17" laptop, That's just to big for me. I have a great backpack i'll be carrying it in but it's designed for 15.6" notebooks or smaller so that's what i'm looking for.
  3. you could go with a g53 or a MSI GE620-021US
    this is a sweet deal. i7 plus a 460m, it will do anything you throw at it
