I need some laptop advice! I've had my Toshiba for ~8 years. It's old and I am shocked it's lived this long (which is part of why I want another Toshiba). I am really set on having another of this brand, but I'm open to at least looking at others as long as it fits my criteria 100%. I also, obviously, bought mine 8 years ago, so maybe toshiba isn't as good anymore, maybe another brand is better? But it'll be hard to change my mind to another brand
So reviews and links on - not just brand - but specific laptops would be really awesome!
Here is my criteria
Hard drive capacity: at least 500GB, but I'd love 1TB - I have two 1TB (so 2TB total) external harddrives but they are filling up so capacity is huge for me
USB ports: the more the better
Screen size: Needs to be at least 17", but bigger would be better. I have a 17.3" now so 17" is the smallest I will go
Needs to be able to handle a serious gamer (lol). Doesn't need to be an actual gaming laptop, but needs to be able to handle it. I play World of Warcraft, and some misc. other games. Needs to be able to support higher quality graphics without lag. Also needs to be good for photo/video programs as I do lots of photography and video stuff (So Sony Vegas Pro, Photoshop CS5).
Price: I'd like to keep it under $1000 including taxes, just because I'll be back at school full time in the fall and have rent/truck/horses to pay for as well, lol.
Reviews/Links would be great!
