Hi With various coupons around there are some very powerful laptops on the market for less than $1000 which in your opinion is the best for the money out of:
Xps 15z (i7 8gb 1g graphics, 1tb hdd) Xps 13 i5 Hp envy 14 Hp spectre xt
Or would you suggest another?
I travel a lot so the lighter weight would help but not essential, I have an external HDD anyway so memory size isn't the deciding factor. I'm quite happy to change the HDD myself for an SSD at a later date if it meant getting a better spec for less than $1000 I also have an external blu-ray rw. It will mostly be used for web design, office and movies. Games unlikely.15 inch screen max to 13 min. Hi -res display would be nice with HDMI output. I have an iMac but would prefer windows 7 or 8 on the laptop.
