My budget for the new computer is:
€1500 - €1700 ($1800 - $2000)

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
So I'm mainly going to use it for school, i'm going to develope apps and games etc. So it will be used for a lot of programming. Besides that I would like to play games on it as well.

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Of his I am not yet aware, but my university gave me some minimum specs: i5 processor and 8gb RAM Minimum. It would be useful if it had 4 memory slots, as I could purchase some additional RAM in the future. Maybe boost it up to 16 or 32 gb of RAM. Therefore an i7 processor is most certainly not out of the question, as I'm going to use it for gaming as well.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
I hope to be able to play the newest games on it for the following 3-4 years.

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?
It's going to do alot of multi-tasking for sure.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Music yes, pictures no, Movies a few, I personally think that about 750gb storage space should be enough, although an addidional SSD for Windows would be quite useful.

Besides this there are some additional specifications:
#1: I need a good keyboard because it will be used intensivly, either on the laptop itself or seperatly.
#2: 15'' would be much appreciated, I am going to carry it around a lot and it would be useful if it would fit in my Eastpak backpack.
#3: I could spare another additional 50 bucks for a decent mouse.

I hope you guys can find the right laptop for me, i have already searched around alot but there are so much laptops to choose from. I am currenly going for the MEDION ERAZER laptops, but if any of you guy have better suggestions, please tell me :)

Oh, and sorry for the bad English, It's not my Primary language.

Well, I live in the Netherlands, so it would nice if I could buy it in Europe.
I think shipping from the US to Europe is an option but i might have to check out how the plug and outlet etcetera works.....

Take a look at the Toshiba Qosmio laptop line of laptops. They do have one drawback, a 17.3" screen.
I would buy local so you can try out the keyboard etc.

This is a us model.......

Wow,they seem very fast and reliable to me, I think I can live with the 17'' screen though.
I am going to a computer store today to see if they have one.
