Well, ANY computer is going to slow down over time, especially over years, as more and more things are installed, uninstalled, downloaded, patched, etc. The registry gets polluted, extraneous crap is loading into the toolbar, and there's just more overhead for it to deal with. Most any computer can benefit from a yearly backup/reinstall of the OS to keep it running at top speed. Back when I was heavier into gaming I'd flatten the drive and reintall the OS and updated drivers every month or two to maintain maximum performance.

I'm in the same boat of looking for a new laptop with about the same needs, esp having a 10-key numpad for excel usage. One that caught my eye was the Samsung SF510. I am going to wait a month or so tho b/c the guy I talked to at Best Buy said the new stuff comes out soon and everything I'm currently looking at will be cheaper. He also spoke well of the Asus line.
