8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? - Not much. Enough to hold a few games.

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed. - I knocked a drink onto my old laptop, and now it's dead. I'm shopping around for a replacement, but not in a big hurry.

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion! It looks nice, but from my brief research into mobile gfx, I've not heard anything reliable about the HD 4000. It seems really hit or miss, without any real consistency between different users. Unfortunately, dedicated gfx with most of the Intel processors puts me significantly over my budget price. I've been looking at some AMD APU's, and that seems like more of an affordable option that will still provide the results I want.
