My laptop seems to have died on me and I am looking to replace it with another laptop. Currently have a Compaq Presario V21600US and would be happy with something similar, if not a little nicer.
I appreciate any and all advice.

My budget for the new computer is: $400-700...

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Email, web browsing, watch tv shows and/or videos (IMDB.com, Hulu, youtube)

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Microsoft Office, Print Shop

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? games on facebook, i.e. mindjolt

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? Typically have Facebook on while checking email and/or other sites.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Yes, use mainly itunes and Shutterfly Studio

I use a comcast wireless router, and would prefer stay wireless. Also wouldn't mind having a webcam to use Skype.

Thank you!
