how about the following: http://www.amazon.com/N61JQ-X1-16-Inch-Versatile-Entertainment-Laptop/dp/B00352LQZS
This is a really good laptop as you can play Crysis on High settings, it has high-end features, and costs only a 1000 bucks. Sure its not 15 inches or under, but it is really portable for it's class. From my experience, you wont miss the luxury of having a portable 13 incher. I HIGHLY recommend it.
If this doesn't suit you, your best bet is a VAIO CW. Happy hunting
Sure, you can go with HP, but from my experience, HP makes bad quality laptops.
But, yeah, the AW M11X is a great buy, and if you can play Crysis on it, what's the matter?
