    I am going to join this new thread branding. The truth is, I really need a laptop and I will most probably get one in the coming weeks. I will be getting one around 1000$ and I have standard preferences:

    - word processing, microsoft office and internet
    - USBs, CD-R (or DVD-R)
    - good enough graphics for a weekly or so movie and a shoot-'em up session (civ of course)
    as for the rest I have no clue....

    What would be good minimal requirements for a modern laptop? I understand that I will probably get Vista, but as far as processor, graphics card and the rest are concerned I get a bit lost.
    What would your recommend for me and what would you put in a laptop suited for your needs?

    Yeah and a nice soft lap pad to keep your legs from getting too warm.
