Default Need help choosing a laptop.

I have been searching for a laptop for days by now and I was wondering if there was any out there that has these requirements for under $850.

-Must be an Intel Core 2 Duo based system
-A nice graphics card (run the usual modern games besides crysis)
-Reliable
-Good for Adobe software
-3-4 GBs of Ram
-Ultraportable or under 7lbs
-A good trusted brand
-I don't care much for the HD capacity but I need atleast something higher than 160.
-And also a S-Video out port, I do a lot of video presentations and plus its good for entertainment values

I have picked out about only one and it's an HP.
Any open suggestions to what laptop I should go for anything would be just nice

Thank you.

Under $850? That's kind of hard...I'm searching now. Is newegg good for you?

The only one I could find that has decent gaming power.

It has nice features the only thing lacking would be the weight, I'll be carrying this to and from school, especially since with an additional of book weight. I think I could handle something uner $1000. But with this option I'll consider it.

This one here is awesome, 4GB RAM, Core 2 Duo @ 2GHz, Blue-Ray, 9600M GT, but it is $1,099 after a mail-in rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834147793
