Which 14 inch laptop under 1000 USD to buy?

By kefan77 ·
Hi,
Looking for a new laptop.
So far, I???m buying this one:

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-6847

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215001

But wanted to make sure, there is nothing better in that price range.
So the requirements:

14 inch screen
i5 CPU (maybe Sandy bridge?) (is it worth it, if I???m getting discrete graphics anyway ?)
Decent discrete graphics (no less than that acer???s 6550m)
Light (up to 2.5kg or so)
Good battery life (4hrs +)
Decent build quality ??? no cheap plastics
No real brand preference: I owned 2 acer travelmate in the last 5 years and no problem. Maybe not MSI
Price up to 1000 USD
Must be available in retail (US) by middle of March 2011

(don???t care about HDD,RAM and OS as I???ll upgrade that to SSD etc. anyway)

This got my attention too, but the graphics is weaker in the Acer:
HP EliteBook 8460p

I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.

thanks
