My budget for the new computer is:
€300 - €500
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Web browsing, watching some videos, do some light work in office.
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
MS Office, Xbmc and SPSS
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Well not really, I mean no counter strike, Halo, etc. I sometimes download a small game like angry birds, but nothing fancy.
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 normally tend to close a program when I'm not using it, and try to run two or three programs max at the same time (i.e. my webbrowser is often open and Excel and sometimes a third program)
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Will you be overclocking?
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?
How many monitors are you planning to use?
Do you need peripherals? OS?
I like it to be 64bit Windows 8.1. I can get this myself if needed.
Touchscreen is a must. I'm looking for a 2 in 1, so a laptop/notebook of which you can flip the screen so it becomes a sort of tablet. I don't mind a bit of weight and probably prefer a non-detachable keyboard (I really like physical keyboards).
Any particular reason why you are upgrading?
I currently have a very old acer aspire one and a very old cheap tablet (arnova). These are both getting very slow even when I only run ubuntu on it. I like the small size of the acer and would like to replace both machines by one. So either a 11.6 or 13.3 inch will probably be the max screen size. I've been looking at the Toshiba Satellite L10 WB102 (cheapest), HP Pavilion X360 11N050ND (middle), Asus Transformer Book Flip 300LADW123 (most expensive of the three and also too expensive), but if you have another alternative I'm all ears. I guess processing & internet speed are most important. Gaming and Graphical capabilities not so much.
Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions.
