1. What is your budget?
Around 1300 U$

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?

1920x1080 or higher

5. How much battery life do you need?

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)?
No. A dedicated GPU would be a good feature but not mandatory at all

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
Mainly for work and watch movies. For work I need one or two virtual machines, so this would be the most consuming

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
At least 500gb, SSD preferably

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
Around 5 years

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?

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.
Don't really prefer any brand, used to have a Lenovo T450 that physically resisted a lot (I use to travel a lot, so this is a great point) and worked well for the task but wasn't amazing. I prefer to invest in something better than that but maintain its the durability

13. What country do you live in?
Argentina, but I'd buy it in USA or Canada

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
The key features for me would be performance for multitasking (I tend to have a lot of concurrent programs + virtual machines) and durability. As I use to travel a lot a low weight would be something to take in account (As a reference, the T450 wasn't heavy for me)
