Any computer specialists help me out because I've been asked to find a new laptop under these requirements

1. Size between 14" ~ 16"
2. Must be HP, Lenovo or Samsung Brand
3. Must have either 256GB SSD or 128GB SSD + 500GB HDD (Or more)
4. Must have 8GB ram
5. Must have an OS installed (Preferably Windows 8 but Windows 7 is fine)
6. Must have a video card equivalent to 640M or better

All of this under $1200. Yeah......... I'm a guy who makes living off computers and couldn't find anything. If you could find something, I will call you god.

Not sure if this has two separate hard drive slots. You could call and find out.

This one definitely has two hard drive slots.
Buy SSD here:
http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-128GB-2-5-Inch-9-5mm-CT128M4SSD2/dp/B004W2JKZI

Replace bad 8gb ssd with awesome 128gb ssd.

Now you’re $20 overbudget with shipping but get awesome graphic kard + 500 gb extra hard drive space.

Took me all of 10 minutes.

Also: Not sure if the SSD in that computer is 1.8 inch or 2.5 inch. Buy at your own risk.

Has to be those three brands, so Asus is already out

That 8GB is actually not an SSD. It's a cache drive and not replaceable.

But this came very close to my requirement at least. I'll keep it as an option. Thanks.

Anyways you could probably just replace that hd with a 256 gb SSD and you'll prolly still be in budget.
