My budget for the new computer is:
$650 with rebates applied
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Web Browsing, Some Flash Games, Email, and watching Blue Rays.
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Preloaded Software for watching blue rays, itunes, office, and Picasa.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Yes, some flash and 3D 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?
I like to multitask.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Yes.

I want a long lating computer with a Blue Ray drive. Right now I have a Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX. It is a little slow for my needs. Here are some options I found on Newegg.

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

Option 5

Option 6

Option 7
