ok need a lap top this is what I want it to do out of the box:
I download a lot of music
hook up to my dual monitors I currently have (is this possible?)
have a HDMI output to hook up to the TV
wireless internet (obviously)
at least 15.4 display (prefer a little larger)
burn DVD (read blu-ray a plus but not required)
I want it to last a while
I want the most power I can get for the money, and would like it to be able to be upgraded easily. this will be my first lap top so I don't know how they work as far as upgrading components. my budget is about $1200.00 I have been looking at sony Vaio FW upgraded to about that price and then I found this guy
provides a little room in the budget. maybe also get some other goodies while I'm there?
also just found this:
never heard good things about gateway desktops.
thanks in advance.
