Default Dell Laptop - Expert advice requested.

Hi Forum Friends,
Pls offer your expert advice on following.
I have to buy a laptop and need your kind assistance in figuring out following:
# I want to buy a Dell Laptop only (no other brands)
Reason: It offers seamless international 3 years warranty
# I would ideally love to buy i7 core which I believe is the most powerful processor now
(Can downgrade to 5i if budget is exceeded)
# I am fine with 14 inches. Even 13 inches would be fine.
# RAM I need is 4GB but love if its 8 GB
# I would love to have a soft touch pad (example like Latitude E4310) and not a metal one because its very uncomfortable to click
# My budget is USD 700 USD 800 but can stretch if needed
# I need laptop soon so would like to order soon
Based on above which model would you recommend from Dell and pls let me know how to get good deals / coupons etc so that I can balance cost.
Thanks in advance for your time and advice.
I really await ur replies.

What are you going to do with this?

Understand that you will have heat problems with higher CPU's as the i7.

For under 800, I'd go with the Inspiron 14R. There are many different configurations.

Just as a question, why only Dell? I know ASUS has a 3-year warranty as well. But, whatever you want.
