Default Needing Notebook Advice by Friday

Alright, So Here's the deal. I just started college. I need a notebook.

I've got no money, but my Uncle just told me that its important to have a computer, so He is going to give me money for one one friday. The first ammount he offered was 500 dollars, but if that's not enough to get what I need he said he can give more if its necessary.

So, I need to find a good notebook in my price range that will do what I need it to do; Word Processing, Mobile Internet Use, Photoshop, 3D Design, and Programming. Can any of you help me find anything that fits all of that? I'm hoping to get atleast a core 2 duo because it gets good battery life.

I need to get atleast 4 hours of battery life, preferably more like 6 or 7 but that's pushing it I'm sure. I'm not necessarily going to run photoshop or 3D rendering on battery power ofcourse.


-- tl;dr --

Need a notebook w/
$500+ range
Long Battery Life
Strong Processing Power
Wifi
That can run Photoshop, 3D Design, MS Visual Studio, and MS Office



Thanks everyone for any advice I can get in advanced

Nice to see you back Paradox.

Try looking at the ThinkPad SL400.

You could also look at the Dell Vostro. These are all business notebooks.
