Need laptop recommendation from the best!

by staciemcnett20 / December 9, 2009 8:34 PM PST

Here's what I do with my laptop everday:
Read email
Compose and store reports-this is very important
Upload, store and edit pictures-this is very important

I need speed and storage. I don't care too much about weight as I don't travel much with it, but do want portability. I don't need the best graphics as my pictures are for personal use, but quality colors so I know what I'm about to print. I want a full size keyboard; can type with speed as long as the keys give me enough room! I need a CD/DVD player, and a SD card reader. Enough available USB ports to support hookups to a printer, my thumbdrive, and whatever else I might need at the moment. I'm hoping not to spend over $700 if possible.

I've had a Lenovo laptop before with Vista and Dual Core processor and it served me well, but it only lasted two years and completely died on me. Like I said I use it everyday.

Any recommendations would be terrific!!

Thanks!!!!
