I need a new laptop for school, my old one does not have 64 bit virtualization and i need that.

I am looking for something with an i7 as i am now completely sick of AMD and it needs to be good with running virtual machines

usb 3.0 would be nice
gigabit ethernet is a must
looking to spend 1000 or less
cant be hp
cant be acer
do not care about graphics at all (integrated is fine)
i prefer 15.6 inch..

If anyone has any suggestions with a link that would be awesome.

Look at Office Depot. They have Toshibas with i7 @ $799 and with i5 @ $599. I bought the i5 model and replaced the HDD with an SSD. It turned out to be my fastest system - even faster than my new XPS 8300 desktop with an i7 and also an SSD.

These Toshibas have USB3 ports and a backlit keyboard which is nice to have.
