My System Specs

I was going to suggest Dell since you can easily customize it to your liking. Though personally gaming laptops are over-rated. And to get a proper one, you need to spend well over $1000 and forget about running on a battery.

Maybe this:
Future Shop: Computers: Laptops: HP HDX 16.0" Intel Core 2 Duo P7450 2.13GHz Laptop (X16-1155CA) - Future Shop Exclusive
Has a 9600M GT though its $200 over.

I personally went with a Dell XPS m1330 for college. Got a 9-cell battery and Intel X3100 graphics with 4GB RAM and T8100 CPU. Can do like 5-6h on battery with light tasks. Can play HL2 for like 2h+ (still had like 30% battery left when I was done). It's also small and lightweight which is a godsend when you have to carry it around all day.
