You can get a heck of a laptop for <$2500. Here's an HP for $2046

Operating System Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo T7500 (2.2GHz/4MB L2Cache)
Display 17.0" WXGA+ BrightView Widescreen (1440x900)
Memory $50 off upgrade from 1GB (2 Dimm) to 2GB (2 Dimm)!
Graphics Card 511MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS
Personalization HP Imprint Finish (Radiance) + Microphone
Networking Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection
Hard Drive 240GB 5400RPM SATA Dual Hard Drive (120GB x 2)
Primary CD/DVD Drive FREE Upgrade - LightScribe DVD+/-RW w/Double Layer
TV & Entertainment Experience HP Expresscard TV Tuner for Windows Vista Notebook
Primary Battery High Capacity 8 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
Productivity Software Microsoft(R) Office Home and Student 2007

I added a TV tuner card so you can have it as a TV in a dorm room. This thing would handle anything for school and you could even use it for gaming.

It has the high end stuff in it. You could back off on the processor I picked to save some money, but that laptop will last for a while.
