Laptop selection options


Jul 12, 2014
I'm looking for a new laptop as I dropped my 4yo Samsung and it has died.
Primary use will be literature reading on a couch, will also use for videogames when traveling (Arma III is my largest game, also CSGO)

Things that I need:
Word processing
Cost <1500ish
>12" screen up to 15"
Long battery life

Things that I want:
RAM (more than 8 if possible)
SSD-bigger is better, can do HDD as well in conjunction, but at least 250gb SDD
Quality display
Multiple USB drives (at least 4)
Basic audio jacks
Optical drive (least concerning)
