Default Laptop for Uni

Going to Uni next year so I'm looking to buy a laptop. Don't really no anything about laptop specs or what's good or bad so need some serious help!

The things i want in the laptop:

Fast Speeds
Windows 7
Decent-ish Graphics card so i can play some games from time to time. (HoN, WoW, CSS) - not the biggest priority, would just be nice to have
Not to big, need to carry it round in a bag and get it out in class etc
Decent-ish for watching movies etc

So yeah any help would be great. Maybe some links to some award winning laptops or ones that are popular meeting my sloppy criteria ;P

Cheers guys. Anything else you need to know to help just post here

What is your budget ?

Any of these would be good
Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS5742G-7200 NoteBook Intel Core i5 460M(2.53GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M
Newegg.com - HP Pavilion dv6-3143us NoteBook Intel Core i3 370M(2.40GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 + Intel HD

If you want a smaller sized laptop, I would suggest this

Get the Acer. You save $100. You get a good dedicated card, too.

Don't get the HP DV6. It has fail printed all over it.

DO NOT get the DV6. Read all the complaints online. It's not in my vocabulary.
