Default Laptop Advice

I'm a college student getting a new laptop in the $700(-750) price range. I want to get an Intel Core 2 Duo of atleast 2.2 GHz, but what I really want is an i5 processor!!!!!!. I would also like anything other than intel graphics, preferably atleast 512MB from ATI or NVIDIA. Any good sales on any sites? I'm going to be using this computer at school and to play videogames on some down time. Anyone have any suggestions? Help please? I'm proably getting it this week.
So far, this is my biggest bet.
But it just sold out

Your not going to find that in your price range.
Faster processors make more heat.

That laptop looks back in stock. I think it would be a good choice for you.
