12 and 14 inchers are way small, though... I would at least go for a 15 inch. the 14 may be doable, but no way the 12.

Partly true, I used to have the same thoughts as you but in fact there is very little difference with the 14" and 15", and as long as you get used to the screen it is ok. I think with $1000, this can be a nice choice:
Sony VAIO VGN-CR220E/L Core 2 Duo T7250 (2.0GHz), 2GB, 200GB .

Dang, that is a sick laptop for $1300. It's making me think Gateway deserves the cash that I have been saving up for that MacBook. idk
