1. I'll be using my laptop for a lot of work over VPN. Some moderate resource-heavy stuff, but not a lot. I'm thinking 250-300 gig hard drive, probably at least 4 gigs of memory or maybe even 8. What type of processor should I aim for? When I use this for work it will be for a lengthy session (think 4-6 hours at a time, at least), so I'd like something that can run as cool as feasible.
2. Are chill pads worth it, or even good for your laptop? I've seen some mixed feedback on this.
3. Can I get this done for $600?
