Laptop for College Student

I'm a beginner user & want to buy a good performance Win 7 laptop for home and college - I'm taking a MS Office and Applications Training program for now. From research on your site :) here are my needs so far. Thank you!

Budget: under $1000

Size: 14" - 15.6" (last laptop was 15.6")

Screen resolution: Don't know enough to say

Portable laptop: Yes

Battery life: Don't know enough to say. Use it plugged in mostly

Play games: Low

Other tasks: MS Office, Powerpoint, Crystal Reports, Skype, Photo editing, some movie watching

Storage: 500GB or higher (recognize SSD nice but GPU more important)

Memory: 6GB (or open to what would suit my needs better)

USB: My accessories are 2.0 I may upgrade to 3.0 in future so prefer if laptop came with both.
