This: Future Shop: Computers: Laptops: Compaq 15.6" AMD Athlon X2 QL-64 2.1GHz Laptop (CQ60-404CA) meets everything you want I think other than battery life which I'm too to sure of. You might be able to squeeze 3h out of it with the lowest backlight setting along with setting Vista to Power Saver mode. And only surf the web or something, no gaming.
What does that laptop come with? 3GB memory, 250GB HDD, and an 8200GS? That's all good if it can play games.
