Looking to build/buy a home theater labtop, please help!

My goal with this is to have a laptop that I can hook up to my 48" HD T.V., and stream movies, internet, ext... and ultimately create a home theater laptop. My budget is roughly 1000$, and as far as specs goes I know what I want (2.3-2.5GHz, 4-8GB ram, and a smaller SSD) up until I hit the GC. I'm a bit ignorant as to what's a good laptop GC, and what would adequately do what I want. If anyone has any suggestions on components, or knows a good deal on a labtop that would meet my goals, please share!

On a side note the SSD will probably be a side upgrade once I have some more disposable income

    But it's only 2.2GHz. Hope u find the best bet. Good luck.

    Great deal and it looks like it will meet the requirements I need it to. Keep the suggestions coming though! It's nice to have a few items/ideas to compare
