I would recommend a notebook with one of the newer AMD Llano APUs in them.

The HP DV7 series are 17.3 inch and are great performers for a great price.

Something like this...
The Toshiba Satellite P755-S5270
Specs Intel Core i5 2410M(2.30GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory DDR3 1333 750GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M
