I need a basic laptop for work, for typing up reports on the go. Battery life is not real important. I don't play video games. I do surf the net a little bit (wireless not important) and I do play around quite a bit with photoshop and lots of digital images on my down time. Needs to have a CD burner. I'll watch movies on it now and then. What do I "need" without spending a million bucks? I'm looking at Dell but I'm open to other suggestions. I don't really know much about the different processors etc. Should I consider upgrading the monitor since I do lots of photos? How about the HD or memory? Or will one of the basic models do? Thanks.
