    Buying a new laptop

    I need some help deciding which laptop to get, I currently own a Asus g73
    SPECS:
    Core i7 Processor
    6GB Ram
    ATI Graphics card w/ 1GB DDR5 ram
    500GB HD @ 7200rpm
    But the problem with this is that I can't do anything mobile as this is a more of a desktop replacement, that i can move around with me yet can't use when im out. I also gave my new MacBook to my wife, as she didn't have a laptop and I didn't really mind. I've been trying to find a decent laptop at no more then $1150 though would like to find something closer to the $700 range. Yet specs at that range aren't exactly that great. Somethings I'm looking for are; 3-6 hours battery life, compatible with BackTrack 5 (the wireless driver needs to support injection), and if the specs are closer to the higher end I'd like to see i5 with 4-6GB of ram. And rather not have an on board gfx card. I have found a good amount of laptops on amazon and if anyone has some ideas it would be a great help.

    Ones that I like:

    ASUS A53U-XE1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Mocha)

    ASUS A53U-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Mocha)

    HP Envy 14-1260SE Beats Edition Notebook (Black)

    HP ENVY 14-2050SE 14.5-Inch Beats Edition Notebook (Black)

    HP ProBook 4530s XU015UT 15.6" LED Notebook (2.1 GHz Intel Core i3-2310M Dual-Core Processor, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB Hard Drive, DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL LightScribe, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit)

    So if anyone has any idea if these support BackTrack5 wireless injection drivers that would be great, and any links anyone has to laptops they know support BackTrack5 would be amazing.

    Also some supported wireless drivers for anyone wondering what they are: Supported Drivers
