You have plenty of choices for something speedy laptop under $1,000. One option would be the Acer aspire V3. It's one of Acer's stylish systems and should meet most of your requirements.
If you can stretch your budget a bit more check out the Dell XPS 14 laptop. Fast boot up times with a pretty cool design. I actually work for Dell so let me know if you have questions!http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/models/aspirev3http://www.dell.com/us/p/laptops?
