10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?

5 years? Maybe that's a little unreasonable.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?

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.

I use my laptop all the time for more than sever hours a day. I also watch a lot of tv and movies on my current laptop so I need a laptop that will be more durable.

  1. Hello clairezy018

    At the top end of you budget but in a 13" notebook: SONY VAIO SA $900
    Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD 13.3" 1366x768 LCD w/ Radeon HD 6630M

  2. Some other options:
    Acer Aspire AS4830TG 14" $680
    Core i5 2450M(2.50GHz) CPU, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD 14" 1366x768 LCD w/GeForce GT 540M

    Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 15" notebook $650
    Core i5 2450M(2.50GHz) CPU, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ GeForce GT 630M.

    GT 540M/GT 630M are roughly equal to the HD 6630M, but seem to run Sims3 a bit better.
