    Laptop with big screen but not heavy
    Need a HD card to hook to an HD monitor when not on the road
    Windows XP (never Vista and not sure about 7 yet)
    Firefox, Chrome, IE 8
    Microsoft Office, including Outlook for email
    Also need Eudora
    Adobe Creative Suite CS4 Extended plus Lightroom
    Strata 3D CX Suite
    Quicken & Quickbooks
    Wired and wireless
    Best graphics card available
    Fastest processor available
    Largest amount of RAM available
    Internal hard drive should be large--but not so large it sacrifices speed. Prefer to use multiple external hard drives for files, so that in the event of computer failure, I can switch my files to the backup computer and not lose a day of work.
    Plenty of USB ports or a docking station, or both.
