I would suggest an Asus or Lenovo Core i5 dual core with hyperthreading. The mobile Core i7's absolutely rape battery life, which would be a pretty important feature for a student I'm assuming. There are a *lot* available at NCIX for under $1000- 15" would be better due to resolutions available (For some reason under 14" seem to have stupid resolutions which could be inconvenient for the type of work you'll be doing) I can try to take a peek for some specific models, but The Asus X Series seems to be pretty feature packed for their prices
