What laptop should I get?

I'm tired of going home or using my school's computers so I'm looking
for a laptop I can take along with me and fire up whereever I go.

Unfortunately I have two conflicting needs. It has to be light and
durable enough for me to carry it around and use all the time but I'd
also like to be able to tide me through new games that will come out
for awhile.

This means that I'll probably be looking for a system with a mobile
processor and a decent nVidia or ATI graphics card. I'd prefer that the
system has as good a battery as possible. At the very least be able to
stay up for more than 1hr under heavy use and maybe 3hr or more with
regular stuff. I also want something that won't go south because of
some shaking. A huge screen is not really much of a concern for me.
Maybe something that weighs in at 7 lb or less. And a low price would
be a nice bonus.

This sager NP3880v notebook is the closest fit I can find although it
is a little bulky. Don't know how long the battery will last. Does
anyone know of cheaper and/or better alternatives to this?
Is sager a good company?
