    Laptop died, need a new one, not looking to spend a ton of dough, only looking to replace it with something powerful enough to satisfy my limited needs. Below is what I use it for:

    1. Internet browsing
    2. Microsoft office (excel, word, PP)
    3. Streaming video (espn3, netflix, bootleg sports video sites)
    4. Porn (I DL it from youjizz using the ANT video downloader app with Firefox then delete the vid after viewing)
    5. Watching DVDs or torrent downloads.

    That's about it. Absolutely no gaming other than poker, no picture or video editing. I want a decent size screen, but nothing cumbersome.

    Please provide me with minimum numbers for RAM, processor, etc. Or just tell me exactly what to buy.

    Man, that's the shit.

    They've got everything on there.

    The fuckin' webcam popups are annoying, but other than that-- everything. :2up:

    Ugh. Yes.

    I'll examine it when I get home and see if this "everything" claim rings true.

    I have some rather exotic tastes.

    I have had this one for 2 years now, and it works the same as it did when it came out of the box. Perfectly.

    How much?

    The one that just died was a Toshiba, but I got like 7 years out of it so I am a fan of their work.

    Is that a metaphor for run perfectly and never breaks down? :scratch:

    If so, then yes.
