    Default Can't seem to find a laptop I want.

    Hello,


    I have been looking for a laptop. I can't seem to get the combination of features that I want. There are so many options and models available that I seem to run into a brick wall of conflicting specs.


    Here is what I am looking for. Does anybody know where I can find a laptop with the following specs.


    Budget I'd like to stay under $850 lower is better


    13" to 16" screen. 14" is probably sweet spot. I'd like to keep the weight down.
    1920x1080 or better resolution
    I'd like to be able to drive an additional external monitor at 1920x1080 or better.
    i5 processor preferred.
    6GB ram 8GB preferred.


    (+) Webcam a plus but not required
    (+) Touch screen a plus but not required


    (-) Optical Drive a minus but acceptable


    Need to run Windows 8.1
    Need to run Creative Suite
    Need to Run Office


    Thanks for any suggestions,
    --Shoki

    What do you think about this deal? I would be using the machine for Web Development.

    Refurb Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro i5 13" 3200x1800 Touch Laptop for $735 + $5 s&h
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6834317214

    It's 4GB but 4GB should be fine for Web development? Don't you think?
