Budget $5-600, Primary use, video streaming, learn programming/coding, email, skype, research.

Software: will install a variety of programming software. I do not do any gaming. Yes, i will likely want to run multiple programs at the same time. I store lots of pictures, some short videos,

I would like to find a refurbished or reconditioned laptop. I currently have an Asus K6OIJ, it has a 17" screen, and I have an additional screen (external) which I love, but it got some water on the keyboard and i can only use an external keyboard and it has been making noise, so i think the harddrive might be going bad, there are some odd issues..

Actually, I would replace the screen and keyboard and add what I need if i knew this computer would keep working. I really like the computer and would get another one, I have the latest office suite and bitdefender, along with webcam, but I would definitly need more ram and memory.

So, i have done a lot of research and still not sure where to buy, and done research on checking harddrive but still not any good or definitive results.

Please, any pointers would be useful. I have learned to take a computer apart and replace parts, it's like a 70's car, just nuts and bolts but the software, I would really like to learn how to discern when and what something is wrong.

I have tried to do my own homework but just don't know enough.

really appreciate any help you all could give.
