Question Laptop for University

Hi,

I'm currently at Uni and i am looking at purchasing a laptop because i spend a lot of time on the train and it would also be handy to kill time at work. I probably wouldn't be using the machine for gaming but would like the capability encase i wanted to play games such as CoD4. University work would be programming, word processing and internet browsing as im doing computer science.

Money isnt a problem i could spend anything between $1500 downwards. I'm just not sure which manufacturer to go with i have looked at Dell and Asus but wanted some further advice.

Thanks.

Do you have a preference on screen size? I'd go with at least 15-15.6"

Toshiba is good in durability and strength as well as gaming.
Newegg.com - TOSHIBA Tecra A11-S3531 Notebook Intel Core i5 520M(2.40GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA Quadro NVS 2100M
