I like the ULV laptops from Asus. My son has an asus and it seems well built. I like the fact that the ULV processors provide enough power for what you seem to want to use it for, yet also provide 10+ hours of life. and they tend to be smaller and lighter which I like.

basically, when you say you have to do photoshop, are you working on giant images (>20MB at least) and doing heavy duty editing or just fixing up pictures for the blog? About 99% of people I've run across who say they need PS actually could probably get by with PS elements or some other lightweight app.
