What is your maximum budget?
I'd prefer not to use more than say, 5000-6000 NOK (860-1000 USD).

What country are you in?
Norway

What will be the uses of this laptop?
Mostly general use, writing/making presentations, internet browsing, programming etc. I'll have a stationary gaming computer at my dorm anyway, so if I'm gonna play games on it it's not gonna be more than old games. It can't be too weak though, as I want it to be fast enough to program and work on it without it lagging too much. The keyboard also needs to be good (and I understand this varies from person to person).

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
No, not really. If I buy something with bloatware on it I'll do a clean install anyway.

What screen size do you require?
15,6" probably, nothing bigger as it's a hassle to carry around. 13" could work too, but nothing smaller.

What screen resolution do you require?
Doesn't really matter that much.

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

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
I don't know what's normal these days, but it shouldn't be too bad.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
If I'm going to play games on it it'll be to test any simple games I'll program during my studies, or older games such as CS:S etc.

What operating system do you need? (if any)
Win 7/8, I think I've got a license I can use from before though.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
Just needs to look pretty normal and not be too heavy to carry around.

How much hard drive space do you need?
Not more than a few hundred gigabytes as I can transfer it over to my regular PC. A SSD would be nice though.

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
Not really.
