    What laptop would you recommend for a business student?

    Features I want it to have:
    • At least one 6-cell lithium ion with 2 battery slots
    • WIFI, Bluetooth and Ethernet integrated
    • CD/DVD burner
    • 1GB+ ram with upgradeable ram up to 4GB or more
    • At least 120GB+ SATA HDD (preferable 160GB+)
    • Fast at loading/starting programs (7200 RM)
    • At least 667MHz
    • At least 1MB L2 cache (preferable 2MB+)
    • 3+ USB 2.0
    • 5 in 1 card reader (SD Memory Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MultiMediaCard, xD-Picture Card)
    • Good quality sound card
    • Keyboard, touchpad
    • Windows Vista Home Premium+
    • Anti-glare if possible
    • Must be mobile! (less than 15.4")
    • Silent - no humming/annoying noises
    • Durable, must last at least for 4 years

    I won't be playing any hardcore games like Bioshock or even games like WoW with this laptop

    This laptop is mainly for school purposes - taking notes, making presentations, etc.

    I also will use this laptop to play movies + music

    My budget is $1500 (CDN), but I want to spend less than $1000 (CDN).
