Help picking out laptop.

Hi all
I am heading of to college this fall and I would like to get a laptop to start of with. I am not looking for a desktop replacement ( I already have my custom desktop.) I just need help choosing one.

Here are the specs I would at least like to have
2.0ghz or higher
15" screen or up
graphics card (integrated or dedicated) does not matter
os does not matter (i will upgrade to Win 7 ultimate later)
I would also like to have a decent battery life since I plan to have it on the go a lot

Thank you very much

    @bennetto- I recommend the VAIO CW and NW. take your pick. They are both great and come with great performance for the price. The VAIO CW is also quiet nice looking.

    @shivapinnuri- Best Buy's Blue Label Dell Studio 15. Perfect fit for your requirements. costs $999 if u live in US. If you live elsewhere i recommend the Lenovo y550p.
