What is your maximum budget? $1200

What country are you in? USA

What will be the uses of this laptop? College, dabble in programing, photoshop, video games, film editing. CAMPING, I don't want a tough book but the laptop needs to be able to handle a little rough movement. I'll take care of it but as the saying goes, **** happens.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you? I like Thinkpad and I like Dell.

What screen size do you require? Around 15" is good. I don't want something super tiny or too big.

What screen resolution do you require? As long as I can see the **** I'm good. Its a laptop, not a full blown entertainment system.

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay? NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW Hardware depreciates in value fast enough. Don't want to get something already spoiled.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet) At least 6 hours.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings? Valve and Blizzard games mostly. Nothing to major. Not concerned about Crysis.

What operating system do you need? (if any) Windows. If drivers work for Ubuntu that is a plus.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.) I don't want ricer ****.

How much hard drive space do you need? As long as it is easy to change the hard drive out, I don't care.

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.) Web Cam would be nice. Smart card reader (I'm military) would be nice.

Is there anything else we need to know? Nope. Thanks.
