2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
I'm torn between 13-15
3. What screen resolution do you want?
This is one of the more important factors. Being that I will be using this for learning to script SQL and Python the more code I can see at a time the better.
4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
I mean, It can't be bogged down when I'm crunching code, but I do have a gaming desktop at home that can do heavy lifting.
5. How much battery life do you need?
As much as possible. Seriously. Can't have enough.
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)?
Minor gaming. League of legends, Borderlands 2, dishonored (when it drops) etc. Higher quality is better, but again, I do have a beast mode desktop exactly for that. So gaming on this is less than secondary.
7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
SQL, Python, Remote Desktop, Using it as main computer when traveling
8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
Not a tremendous amount. But an SSD would be really nice

As long as possible

Portability + warranty is an issue as well. I would like to keep it under 5lbs and would like to be able to get a full coverage warranty so I'm not being gouged when *** hits the fan.
