I'm getting a new laptop computer, and my parents have agreed to pay for up to $1200 of it. If the model I want is more than that, I have to pay the difference - so logically, I'm hoping to get a great deal on a minimal budget. What brand/model do you recommend? I just need something speedy [no lagging when I'm running Photoshop & other larger programs], lots of room for mp3s & such, a CD burner, & preferably a DVD-Rom as well, but not necessarily a DVD burner.
Also, I know nothing about graphic cards & whatnot, but I assume I should want a nice one since I plan to view DVDs on my laptop. So on that topic, what are good quality graphic cards?
P.S. If you know of any other communities that may offer better advice on this, let me know!
