Talking Help with buying laptop

I want to buy a laptop that is FAST, LIGHT, HAS LONG LASTING BATTERIES, and also cheap!

I'm new to laptops and researched a bit and found out that mobility processors are faster than original ones, like the intel celeron M can whip the pentium 4's butt! (correct me if I'm wrong)

Since Pentium M's are expensive im probably going to go for a celeron or Sempron. I still don't know much about AMD, but I've seen a poll for Sempron vs celeron M and the majority voted for the AMD Sempron.

anyways overall I don't know alot about laptops, I am just looking for a laptop that is
and also if possible a one that can run Warcraft3, counter-strike, and World of Warcraft.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

whats your range $500-$1000 or $1000-$1500

My bro just bought a laptop from compaq
AMD Athlon 3700+
1GB Ram
ATI Express 200m
80gb HDD
for $1200
So theres a idea of what you can get.
Here's Dell if your on a tight and small budget.
Alienware a little more expensive but i heard the Customer Service is great.
With Both of these you're only gonna get integrated Graphics so good
luck playing WoW on them.
