Default Suggestions for laptop for about $1,200-1,400?

I'm looking for something similar to a nicely optioned Dell XPS M140 in terms of size, power ect. Want to spend around $1,200-1,400 give or take. This will be my home and work computer, pictures, video, no gaming really.... Any suggestions would be great!

alright. here goes.

the new apple macbook (not pro) is awesome. good graphics + 512 mb ram + integrated wireless + long battery life + intel processor + 13 inch screen.

you can install windows on it too with the bootcamp software.

This one's nice, power consumption is just ok. Get the extended 12 cell battery for 7 hours of on time:
