Desktop replacement.

Hello,

ok from your post I gather you need a good CPU (for video encoding), good webcam (for skype) and matte screen. You need at least 13" and $700 top.

I can recommend the following:
Lenovo G570. Here's a few reviews: one two

or for slightly better graphics:
Lenovo Z570 15.6" - review list

The only problem with those is the newegg ones come with glossy screens, however, I'm sure that lenovo does offer matte screen option on their laptops, so it's just a matter of finding one that has such screen.

Another notebook with similar specs is Fujitsu Lifebook LH531.
