Pick one at CostCo for me. :) So things to run this site ...

Web usage obviously
video editing
photo editing
word processing

I assume 12GB or 16FB memory first. Been judging between 1TB HDD or smaller SSD. There is a Samsung on sale that seems like a good deal for the specs and Consumer Reports rated the 360 equivalent of it pretty well. I've had Samsung Tablets but not a computer. Likely going to use an external monitor at least sometimes with any choice and an external hard drive so not sure if no optical is an issue.
