    Choosing a new laptop

    Anyone know of any good laptop-spec databases? I'm trying to find just the right laptop for me and I'm having a doozy of a time. Alternatively, if anyone here has any suggestions, that'd be great.

    Must have:
    1+ USB 3.0
    16x9 resolution or better
    6 hours battery
    right-click key on the keyboard
    SD card reader
    Upgrade-able RAM or at least 8GB
    <15" screen
    <$1000
    Core i5

    Nice to have:
    Backlit keyboard
    2+ USB 3.0
    6+ hours battery
    <14" screen
    eSATA
    Ethernet port (without dongle)
    Docking station
    <$700

    6hours bttery seems little difficulty to get.
    Most 4hours are good based on the normal online app, not gaming though.

    Most laptops with i5 and some i7 cpu will meet what you needed.
    Of course, many AMD CPU powered laptops as well.

    Hope this helps.
