Hi guys,
I'm looking for a new laptop that is a good mix between mobility and good performance.

My budget for the new computer is:
around $1000

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?

different tasks (multimedia) including gaming

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
MS office, and games

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
games like blackops

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?

I have usually several or a couple programs running at the same time unless I'm gaming or using programs that need lots of resources.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Not a lot. I'd say average.

Furthermore, I'm looking for a laptop which I would buy here in the US but it should have warranty in Europe, especially Germany, too. Sony doesnt have international warranty so they're out of the equation.

I have been looking around a little bit and saw those this one:

I read that this laptop its performance is really good. However, I've read some keyboard issues and the weak batterie which only last less than an hour under full power.

Do you have any other suggestions? I'm looking for a brand and laptop which had a good reputation and is not famous for breaking after 1 year or so.

Thank you very much!
