I'm looking to get a laptop for college. Any suggestions?
-- I'm most likely bringing my desktop, so I don't need some desktop replacement laptop. I'm looking for something relatively small/portable (ultraportables are acceptable, netbooks are not)
-- For a CPU, I prefer an Intel C2D (or newer)
-- I hate Acer, Dell and Gateway
-- I don't really want a mac, sorry Apple fans; not hatin', just a preference
-- I like Vista, Ultimate edition preferred (32bit or 64bit doesn't really matter)
-- At least 2GB of RAM, more highly preferred (DDR2 or DDR3 doesn't really matter)
-- Screen size: 13in or smaller
-- Weight: Let's just say 5 pounds is highly pushing it
-- Camera preferred
-- Fingerprint reader would be cool (though does anyone know how useful it actually is?)
-- HDMI-out would be snazzy
-- Blueray drive would also be snazzy (my desktop doesn't have a BR drive, nor do I have a PS3 or standalone)
-- I don't really care for an SSD.. I think I'd prefer more GB space; but who knows
-- To be honest, I prefer the little eraser head over a trackpad, but either is fine (or both)... multitouch trackpad would also be snazzy
-- Price: Eh, nothing over $3000.. but I think anything in the 2000s is still pushing it. lol
So I've been lookin' at a lot of Sonys lately, but when customized to everything I want, they're hella expensive. So I've also been lookin' at some Lenovos and ASUSes. Let me know if you guys find anything. Thanks

Funny story: my buddy had one on his hp and i simply took the middle digit of my finger and ran it across a few times and it let me in. he didn't believe me and i told my other buddy to do it and it worked for him too lol.
just my 2 cents

Also, I'd like to know what you have against Macs. I mean I know I didn't like them either till I got my hands on one and then ended up buying one of my own.
