Because of the recent appearance of the Blue Screen of Death on my 3+ year old Dell Inspiron, I am in the market for a new laptop. I have a few requirements for a new one and am on a budget ($1,400 is about the top). I don't game THAT much but do enjoy World of Warcraft. I would like a laptop that will be solid (as much as it can be, I know we can't see the future) for the next couple years. I would like the screen to be 15''-17'', Windows 7, a good to outstanding video card, a good amount of RAM and memory, etc. I have been looking at Dell Studios (mainly because I my last two computers have been Dell's) but am very open to changing. I have heard good things about Asus and some of the Toshiba's. I also will be using it for work (Word processing, PowerPoint, etc. nothing special) and I have a decent sized music library that I would like it to accommodate. I don't have the time or the patience to build it myself and would love to buy it early next week.

Thanks so much for your help in advance!!!

For gaming I would check out the Asus G series laptops. They are very fast and perfect for gaming. Check it out online, I think they are somewhere in the range of your budget.

FWIW: There are many reasons for BSODs...hardware, software, malware, damaged O/S come to mind.

If I threw a computer away every time I saw a BSOD...I could not afford to play at this as I do :blink:.
