My budget for the new computer is: Don't have one.

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

Music, videos, gaming, web browsing, college work, video messaging.

What software do you intend on using on the computer?

itunes, photoshop, approximately 12 programs for my college major, other multimedia programs.

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


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?

A lot of programs running.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Both. Approximately 250g as we speak.

That's just a little background. Right now I have a 6 year old Dell Latitutde D820. I upgraded to 4g ram but i swear that's slowed it down more than anything. Only has 70G internal and i'm running a 1T external. I burn a lot of games/dvds and have to use an external. I've had to repair this computer numerous times and it's becoming extremely slow. I need a fast to extremely fast computer to handle all of my multimedia programs for school. Something that has long battery life as it can be portable. Also it needs to have good security. I'm constantly in and out of highly populated places where laptops are stolen or hacked.

I don't know enough about computers to build my own, i'm just looking for advice on which brand and what specs would be good for me.

Any questions please ask and I'll do the best I can.

It's pretty rare to find a high performance laptop that has a long battery life.
