What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Internet browsing, word processing, some games, email, engineering programs (nothing intense - that is what the Engineering computer lab is for), and maybe some programming.
What software do you intend on using on the computer? AutoDesk Inventor, IE, Outlook, MS Office, etc.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Some games. Nothing with intense 3D graphics though.
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 usually have Outlook and IE running in the background regardless of what I'm doing. Unless I plan on using something that takes up lots of RAM that is.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Nothing extensive. <100GB of music, pictures, and video
I would like a 15" screen. Not sure how available, high quality, or financially friendly (with given specs)a touchscreen would be, but I am a fan. Not sure if it plays a role, but I would use an external mouse.
