Help me buy laptop, will buy you blue name!

So my computer knowledge and skillz are a bit limited so I need some help.

My current laptop is dying and I need to update.  I have a Toshiba Satellite 15 inch screen with i3 Core.  It's been OK.....I really only use it for work, internet and maybe watching movies sometime.

Would like something faster, reliable, maybe larger screen, plenty of RAM.  And here is something important and I want to know if it's possible or what your suggestions would be:

I need about 1 TB of HD space for pics, movies etc.  but I also want benefit of almost instant boot up on SSD.  I heard you can just have the OS and a few other things on SSD and use regular HD for storage.  I am not opposed to entire SSD HD but don't see anything nearly 1 TB in size that is reasonably priced.

So there you have it....any recommendations much appreciated.  Winner gets blue name

Thanks!

What's the budget. That is key bud.

I can go 5 different suggestions based on what you can afford to pay.

As for the TB HDD problem. You are better off with a pocket sized external unless you want a clunker computer. Phone Post 3.0

This. A $700 desktop will smoke a $1000 laptop, 24/7.

Thanks for input. I actually just bought a new desktop not too long ago based in feedback from OG. Gave blue for that too.

Also I'm not building my own. No idea how to do that. Guy who got blue last time built one in cart for me from cyber computer. Maybe I should try that?

Budget would like to be under $1000. Phone Post 3.0

Thanks.  For some reason that page won't load correctly, but I could get the specs.  I prefer Windows 7 and 1 TB HDD.  Minimum 8 GB RAM



I am interested in this "hybrid drive".  Can you elaborate?  Is it a SSD/HD combo?

Will do.  Do you know anything about a Hybrid SSD/HD?

Do. Not. Buy. HP. Or. Dell.

I have really like the 2 Asus's that I recently bought. I hear Lenovo is good as well, but I found that you get more bang for your buck with Asus. Phone Post 3.0

People still buy these things?
