What's the budget? If you aren't gaming and have a decent budget, look at a MBP. Seriously, I'm not kidding.

The best laptop in that price range is this one, but it does not have a backlit keyboard.

Newegg.com - lenovo G780 (59359270) Notebook Intel Pentium 2020M(2.40GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVDĪR/RW Intel HD Graphics

This may be a dumb question but does Microsfot vs Apple matter for you? You can find plenty of Windows based PC's around the $500 range, but if you are looking for a Mac then you'll be hard pressed to find one unless it's used.
