3. What screen resolution do you want?1600x900

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? uh both-ish?

5. How much battery life do you need? At least a few hours. More would definitely be better, but it's not like a dealbreaker or anything.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)? mmmh, probably just stuff like tomb raider games, and sims. maybe left 4 dead. medium quality's fine for me.

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) Photo and video editing, photoshop, illustrator, indesign, all those sorts of things.

13. What country do you live in? USA

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed. I'd like to either be able to go in a store and get it or get it from a well known/trustworthy site.

Here's a good HP for your price.

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-dv7-7010us-17-3-Inch-Laptop/dp/B0085RZPPA/?tag=amazons0d8-20

And here's a good Asus for your price

http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-X75VD-DB51-17-3-Inch-Laptop-Black/dp/B008BF7VLC/?tag=amazons0d8-20

Both laptops are good for the price they're offering. Their processors are average, when compared to higher models with core i7 processors, but they'll be good enough for you to manage without any problems. Both have at least 6GB RAM, which will also help the average processor run smoothly. Take a look at their specs and see if it's what you're looking for. :)

thanks for taking the time to answer, but I am more preferable to a 15in or even 14in. I do want it to be semi portable and 17in laptops aren't as friendly for lugging around.
