What laptop should I buy?
My laptop just died on me, and I need a new one. Both my fiance and I have had HP's for years and liked them (lasted about 5 years or so), but are open to anything. She'll be the primary user, and I'm not looking for a gaming rig. Mostly web-surfing, email, photo and video viewing (possibly editing?), watching blu-rays. Doesn't need a blu-ray burner (thinking of getting one for my desktop).
My last laptop was a 14" and hers was a 15.6", leaning towards the 15. Battery life is important, and we'd like to keep it as light as possible. Mostly home use. Neither of us are mac people (pc desktops and laptops, android phones and tablet), and aren't really considering jumping on that train right now. We'd like to keep the price under $1,000.
What should I be looking for? Avoiding? What questions should I be asking? It's been a long time since I've gone laptop shopping...
If you need more info from me I'll answer any questions. Thanks for any help you can provide.
