Or are there better in this range? I need a new one for school. Battery life isn't a concern since I'll usually be plugged in. I do everything primarily from my laptop, so it is basically a desktop replacement. Minor video editing. 2007 was when I last purchased a laptop so I don't know what's good anymore.

Looks like it's got a slow and small HDD, and Windows 8 is never a bonus. Check out the HP Probooks.

There is nothing wrong with Windows 8. If buying a new computer there is no reason to not get it.

I willing to try to learn Windows 8, so that's not an issue for me.

If you're going to get a 15" laptop you should find one with a screen resolution of at least 1600x900. Also don't bother with a touchscreen unless the laptop can fold into a tablet. Vertical touchscreens are useless.
