1. What is your budget?
I would say up to about $850 or so

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
Would prefer 15.6 or bigger

3. What screen resolution do you want?
HD if possible (1080)

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Portable as I will be using it for business

5. How much battery life do you need?
Not sure about how much is NEEDED but I would like as much as possible for the system

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)?
No games on this, mostly music

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
Will be dealing with high res photos but no demanding editing.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
Not the biggest issue as I have a 2TB and a 250GB removable HDD

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(bit lower resolution than I would prefer)

http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-CT15-A4-15-Inch-Light-Ultra...

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
As long as I need it :p 

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
Just a normal DVD drive will do fine

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 am an Asus fan boy, but so far have not been able to find one that fits just right. I have also looked at Vizio and Sony as linked above

13. What country do you live in?
U.S.

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I would really prefer to avoid windows 8 if possible, but not the biggest deal. I am willing to give it a chance if need be and I also understand that I could just purchase a copy of 7 later.

I will be using it for my business in real estate so I plan on being pretty mobile, but I would still like to have a decent amount of "computer" at the same time.

Asking a lot out of a portable budget computer I know but I wanted to see what you guys thought. The number of choices are overwhelming and I am simple not able to do a significant amount of research to be comfortable with my choice at the moment, as studying for my license etc. consumes most of my time.

Thank you in advance :)

Been looking around and I have found a few that fit what I want except they are all about 14". is it really that big of a difference?

After more research I went with the Samsung. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6834131430

Awesome thus far (minus windows 8). Only real problem is it has shared video memory and therefore at first start up is using 3.6 gb of it's 4gb of RAM.

So for $30 I ordered 4gb more and that should make it good to go. :)
