New to laptops!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently finished building my Desktop-PC with the help of overclock.net and I am very happy with it. So now since I am going to go to the university and will start to travel alot, I decided to buy my first laptop.

What is your maximum budget?
1200€

What country are you in?
Austria (Europe)

What will be the uses of this laptop?
General school work (word, excel, etc...), music, gaming, watching movies, etc...

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
No.

What screen size do you require?

15"-17"

What screen resolution do you require?
720p

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?
New, please.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
I don't know how long they usually last. But I should be able to work on it for atleast 3-4 hours.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
LoL, CS:S, BFBC2 and upcoming BF3, Diablo 3 (lol)

What operating system do you need? (if any)

Windows 7

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
Don't need anything special.

How much hard drive space do you need?
320GB should be enough.

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
No.

Is there anything else we need to know?
This would be my first laptop ever, so I really have no idea what is good regarding brands and so on.

Thx, Pino.
