    My desktop was 'up to snuff' 4 years ago.. It was assembled by a
    local computer store no longer in business. I have never owned a
    laptop and would like some advice on a reliable machine, fast, and
    good quality. My desktop will continue to help me with music/video
    editing and with all photo processing that I enjoy working with.

    I would like to spend no more than $1,000. I know that there will
    be a lot of individual decisions I have to make on the different
    components, but is there a minimum 'must have' boundary that will
    carry me through for the next few years? Thank you for any advice
    you can provide.
