Okay I am a college student (student discounts) with my classes beginning very soon and I would like to purchase a new laptop. My budget for the laptop would be at a max $1,100. Right now I own a little 10" netbook with an Atom processor in it that just doesn't perform or run well at all.
I would like the new laptop to be very portable and lightweight. Maybe a 13", 14", or 15". Not any 17" too big!
I do a little light gaming like World of Warcraft or the new Star Wars: Old Republic. I would at least like to run these games on the laptop.
Excellent battery life is important to me, as I don't want to carry around a charger everywhere I go. Maybe at least 5hrs if not more..
Here are some laptops I have looked at so far and they do peek my interest:
MacBook Pro 13" Core i5 2.5Ghz

Samsung Series 7 14" Core i5 2.5Ghz

Alienware m14x 14" Core i5
Sony Vaio T Series 13.3" Core i5

Please help me choose which one would best suit my needs..I am really torn on this. Also if you have a different you can suggest, do so. I am always up for suggestions. Any help or advice would be so great!!
