Laptop or Desktop? Either one.
My budget for the new computer is: $500.00
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Want to. I've always wanted to play a Sims game again...but it's not a priority.
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?
Yes, sometimes up to 10+ tabs, wordpad, calculator.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
No music. Photos and videos, yes. Lots of them. I back them up on USBs as well. I take a lot of pictures.

Not sure what that means. If that means having to use the pc while plugged in cause the battery ran out, then yes. (I sometimes use 8-10 hours on the pc everyday..)
