I currently own a Lenovo Y580 which has an intel i7 3610QM processor, 8gb DDR3 ram and a GTX 660m. I love my laptop, it's served me well these past three years but my only problem with it is the weight. I used to think I would game a lot on it but the college life has taken a toll on my gaming, and can only game whenever I am home with free time (on my much better desktop). Carrying my laptop to my university (6.2 lb laptop) plus my other books and notebooks really takes a heavy toll on my back because of all the walking I have to do.

I was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion for a laptop that is lightweight but will not be such a huge sacrifice on CPU performance? I'm looking for something with at least an i5 (i7 preferred, not those new ones that are cheap) and nothing less than 8gb or ram with a weight of around 3-4 lbs. I won't be gaming on this, so graphics is not an issue. My budget is around $1000. Thank you for your help!
