Hello, i'm looking for a new laptop that i'm planning to use for school. Here's what i'm looking for.

Budget:
$800-1100

Where I'm Buying:
Canada

When I'm buying:
Summer of 2014

Likes or Dislikes
I would like to avoid AlienWare or Apple computers (although with apple if it's necessary I will buy it)

Use:
As mentioned before I need a laptop for school. I need it to be light (around 2kg or 5 pounds,being light is a necessity)as well as durable, so I can carry it around. But I also want to play games such as Minecraft and several Emulated games at around 40-60+ fps.

Operating system:
I would like Windows 7 64 bit but I am open to other OS'

Screen:
I don't care too much about glare, But I really don't like touchscreens

Memory:
I would like around 500GB of memory but I can get an External Hard Drive

RAM:
Around 6GB

Optical drive:
I can get an external one, but if it can be on the laptop it would be nice. No HD though.

Battery life:
5 1/2 hours

Speakers:
I'm not a big fan of music, so if the speakers are not the best quality I can live without them, I'm going to use headphones anyway.

New or Refubished:
New

Design:
Design is importent, but not nescessary

Instore or Online:
Instore

Other features I would like:
Vga port
Usb ports
Bluetooth
wireless Lan


Please Post Links to Recommended Laptops
I'm welcome to suggestions as to what companies to avoid or vice versa.
Thank you

While the Clevo brand name is perhaps not widely known, their products are re-branded and sold by known boutique brand OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers)… notably Sager, VoodooPC, Falcon Northwest, Eurocom, etc. They are also considered (by whoever knows about notebooks) to design and manufacturer the best of the best notebooks in terms of superior build quality and innovative designs.
