Gaming, Video editing, Audio mixing, Photoshop, Illustrator

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
I have a portable drive with me at all times, so I'd prefer an SSD

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.
Anywhere reputable and anywhere with a decent return policy is ok with me

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
As long as realistically possible. The last laptop I owned died after 3 years of use and abuse.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
Don't need one

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.
It's been so long since I've shopped for a laptop that I don't know who's reputable anymore. I would like to buy from a reputable manufacturer that has a decent warranty.

13. What country do you live in?
US

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I want it to be light and thin, if possible. I would like the processor to be an i5 or i7. If possible I would also like a decent dedicated GPU (like an NVIDIA X50, or X60).
This is simply to supplement my desktop. I need something where I could do work while away from home and still game every so often.

Thanks!
 
Although it may come in a little over your budget, the Asus N550JK would be a good option for you to consider. The Lenovo Y510p is a nice system also, and it comes in under your budget, giving you more flexibility to spend on an SSD. Both have dedicated graphics; the Asus, utilizing the more powerful and modern chip, has an 860M, while the Lenovo can take a 755M or two 750M cards.
