Default Awesome ultra-portable laptop?

Ill use this for college, wireless internet, blu-tooth, Hulu, music, videos, mild gaming, and connectability such as an SD card slot.

Price? preferably under 1000 but it's cool if it's a littler over
size? Needs good dimensions, probably like 13in. Its got to be portable, I'll be moving around ALOT
It needs to last me awhile, I just want it to be a joy to be with.

Capable to upgrade hard drive, RAM, and wireless 802.11n, and battery life if needed.



I was looking at the HP-DV3T


HP Official Store — Buy an HP Pavilion dv3 and dv3t series notebook PC from HP

I'll order it with the upgraded GeForce G 105M and with a better processor. I can upgrade the RAM, HDD, Wireless Card myself (much cheaper!) and the education discount helps.

What do you guys think? Thanks, I appreciate it!

THe GeForce G 105M is a Class 3 Low-Midrange Graphics Cards. You might want to reconsider.

Spec wise i'd say it beats any Ultra-Portable laptop, as most of them have the rubbish Intel Atoms

You're right. I did check out the sticky at the top and I can't find any laptops that has (or has the upgradeable option of) a significantly better video card.

I did find a sony, but I can't do 1,500-2,000. That's just ridiculous for a 13" laptop.

I won't be playing Empire Total War or anything super demanding. Starcraft 2 (when it finally comes out!) doesn't look too demanding, but I got alot of "old" games. I got a desktop for serious gaming, but if I'm stuck away from home, I'd like to play something mild to help avoid boredom. Will it be fine?
