4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? Kind of in the middle, i will be using it as desktop replacement and also taking it to college.

5. How much battery life do you need? Dont care to much, 3hours surfing is more than enought.

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)? I want to play Starcraft 2 in medium on a 1920x1080 screen and maybe a shooter some day (right now only SC2).

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) Nothing too demanding.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? Not much, i prefer a small SSD drive but i now is impossible in this price so i would get it in the future and replace the original.

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. No hp, toshiba or acer. I like samsung, asus, msi...

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed. The perfect configuration for me is a i7-4700mq and a Geforce 765m but i dont think I can get that for 1000$ (at least in Spain) so im looking for the best that fit my budget.

Thanks very much!
