I'm a pharmacist but I do spend time in the workplace interacting with databases, drawing information to identify and interpret trends and expanding to more of a health informatics role. The only "programming" language I know is PHP. I wanted a way to better manage a website that had dozens of web pages, so I chose PHP over ASP back in 2001...
I believe that deal pops up at the Microsoft store occasionally for that price; currently $760 there. I'm stopping by the store tomorrow morning to take a look at some of the IPS laptops to weight if the screen is enough of a price premium for me.The best I've found thus far is the Lenovo Z50 for $579 since I don't imagine myself needing discrete GPU for visual novels, anime, and emulators.• 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4510U Processor (2.00GHz 1600MHz 4MB) [This is a dual...
I'm quite comfortable with any laptop screen size of greater than 14 inches, as it will spend the majority of the time being very sedentary. I am eligible for a student discount but I'm actually enrolled in an online master's program, so I'm not actually needing to carry a large laptop from lecture hall to lecture hall. I actually used a 16" laptop when I was in professional school. I used the desktop in my signature for the heavy lifting when it comes to GPU intensive games.
What is your maximum budget?
Looks like Fry's is having a clearance on Sandy Bridge components. Possibly I can secure a i5-2400 + LGA1155 board for $80. Time to get my relatives who have never set foot inside a Fry's to set foot in there.
I'm looking to have a PC sitting in my living room connected to a 60" Samsung Plasma TV.

The heaviest thing I can expect to emulate would be PS2/Wii games.For visual novels, the system requirements are really really low. The latest one I have (i.e. released on June of this year)As for anime, a lot of it will be the 1920x1080 10bit variety.
