Something like this would be very ideal it has an i5 so it would also meet most of your processing needs. 8GB of memory is very helpful and plenty to run this machine and then some. The 1TB HDD while not that "big" in this huge technology day is still plenty for general storage.
I also saw one for $479.99 with very similar specs with a larger screen
