Not sure about how much is NEEDED but I would like as much as possible for the system

Just a normal DVD drive will do fine

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.
I am an Asus fan boy, but so far have not been able to find one that fits just right. I have also looked at Vizio and Sony as linked above

13. What country do you live in?

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I would really prefer to avoid windows 8 if possible, but not the biggest deal. I am willing to give it a chance if need be and I also understand that I could just purchase a copy of 7 later.

I will be using it for my business in real estate so I plan on being pretty mobile, but I would still like to have a decent amount of "computer" at the same time.

Asking a lot out of a portable budget computer I know but I wanted to see what you guys thought. The number of choices are overwhelming and I am simple not able to do a significant amount of research to be comfortable with my choice at the moment, as studying for my license etc. consumes most of my time.

Thank you in advance :)
