I'm in need of a new computer. I've been using my desktop for about 7 years now and it's time to upgrade. I've decided on a laptop and will partially use it connected to my desktop monitor (because it's big). I am asking for suggestions what to buy from the computer gurus.

My requirements are fairly simple. I'm not a gamer, therefore, no major graphics card is required (I think). My main purpose for a computer is internet surfing and video/audio editing, which may revert back to the need of a graphics card. The editing is done for surveillance and requires good quality. The remaining requirements are general desires such as quality display (when not using with my desktop monitor), minimum 15" display, minimum 500GB drive, minimum 2 GHz processor, prefer a graphics card with it's own memory instead of sharing, otherwise, I would want an 8GB memory and a burnable DVD/CD-rom.

Also, when purchasing a new computer, is there a way to avoid most of the useless extra software added in these bundles with exception to uninstall one at a time?

All suggestions appreciated.

Thank you

I just realized I put this in the wrong forum. My apologies. I hope a moderator can move it to the proper forum.

Edit: Moved topic from System Building and Upgrading to the more appropriate forum as requested by the member. ~ Animal

I've been thinking about these HP units. Any concerns about HP models?

Costco has great prices on them right now.

The HP Envy DV7-7323CL and the Toshiba would be fine.
