I need a 13.3 laptop that I can carry around, but it MUST HAVE powerful GPU 1920X1200 or 1920X1020, nothing less than that. I want the full HD.

The reason is I have a 22” full HD Asus monitor, so I want to be able to plug the laptop into the big screen and work that way when at my desk. I also have wirless keyboard and mice. So, the laptop will basically sit on my desk with the lid closed.

What you are doing at the resolution is more important than the size itself. If you're trying to play blurays or .mkvs most non-intel integrated GPUs should be enough. If you're web browsing or word processing it doesn't matter.
