Laptop or Desktop?
Laptop

My budget for the new computer is:
1100 or less please, but a little more is okay

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Web browsing and gaming

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
I don't understand the question

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Yes, skyrim, FO4, etc

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?
Tend to leave things running

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Mostly movies but I usually only have a few at a time

Will you be overclocking?
No

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?
Chesapeake

How many monitors are you planning to use?
One

Do you need peripherals? OS?
Not sure what this means but I don't think so

Any particular reason why you are upgrading?
My laptop has been acting up also would like a laptop that lasts me a while if possible. I know they are more fragile I guess but I need something to take to and from work.

How long are you going to need to save up for this? - I find the laptop market is constantly changing & that it is not worth trying to spec a machine until you are actually ready to purchase.

I'm with rqt you need to wait until you have the $1,100 before you start asking.  Anything we recommend today won't be as good as something we would recommend next month.

Another issue: Whatever is recommended today may not be on the market when you get ready to buy a new system. Or if it is, since technology is constantly changing it could be not worth getting later.

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
I don't understand the question


Will you be installing a lot of software dedicated to specific functions? For example, if someone does a lot of graphics work, he/she might have to install several graphics related programs.

Do you need peripherals? OS?
Not sure what this means but I don't think so


Peripherals: Mouse, keyboard, monitor. Also things such as separate graphics, sound, network cards for a desktop system.
