Uhhh thats hard to find..... But i recently bought a asus ul80vt off amazon and It runs beautifully. It has a sloghtly lower screen resolution (768pish) and a slightly smaller hard drive(320gig)but it gets me 10+hours on battery life on integrated and 6ish on dedicated-Plenty to last the school day. Also I have even been able to squeeze Cryisi out of it in low setting o.0.
