Need help in picking new laptop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I need a new laptop this summer and I would very much like some recommendations for good choices. My budget is up to $1400, but I have a few requirements. It cannot be too heavy because I will be travelling with it a lot and i would like to keep the weight under 4 pounds. I would like to occasionally be able to perform some light gaming and also I would like it to have a pretty long battery life. Obviously, I would want a large screen with a high resolution and atleast 256 GB's of storage preferably through ssd's. I was previously looking at the Sony Z series and I was really liking it, but unfortunately sony is discontinuing that product line. Anyway I would love some suggestions for a laptop that somewhat meets my specifications. Thanks for your help

Do not buy a new laptop until Haswell for laptops comes out. Then we can talk. Haswell is going to dramatically increase battery life and if you buy a laptop now you will forever regret it.
