Things I want in an Ideal Laptop

Well, my Laptop is getting older and I can feel it. It still does a lot though. Recently I found out that its CPU does not have virtualization capacity which is required for the android emulators for better performance. So I started looking for other laptops as well. Last time I bought a laptop, it's been five years, and frankly I did no research nor I had any Idea what to look for in a laptop back then. I didn't know what processor is, what WI-FI is, why is resolution important, What size should I buy, Why are weights important for a Laptop, What is the difference between the different USB technologies, What is SSD, etc. Now that I have spent lots of time with Laptops and computer system, I know What I want in an Ideal Laptop.
