1. one of the most important is the heat factor, I am keeping it a lot on my leg in cafeteria or other places and the last HP 6710B was very bad.
2. the screen needs to be very good as I read on it a lot (desktop I have an IPS)
3. it needs to be light as the current one ( HP 6710B) is pretty heavy

I am using it mainly for reading and coding during my weekends,commute and travels.

Hello supersmecher;

In your budget range you should be able to get a 15" 1600x900 or 1920x1080 LCD screen.
Getting an IPS panel is going to be a challenge in the thin and light models. How firm is that requirement?

Dell has an IPS panel in the M4600 Precision Workstation. But it's well out of your price range.
As a $500 option (plus they require a $490 GPU upgrade to get it:
15.6" UltraSharp™ FHD(1920x1080) PremierColor IPS RGB Anti-Glare LED-backlit Premium Panel Guarantee [add $499.00]

HP has a matching IPS option in it's HP EliteBook 8560w 15" Mobile Workstation model.
$450 option for a 15.6" LED-backlit FHD UWVA anti-glare DreamColor (1920 x 1080).
Probably north of $3000 in final configuration.
