[vox] Linux Laptop Purchase - Soliciting Suggestions

So...any recent experience purchasing a laptop to run Linux? ;o)

Saving up for a laptop purchase in the next few months:
  • Primary user: UC-Davis computer engineering undergrad (2011-12 recommended specs)

  • List of UC-Davis computer engineering software--for example, Matlab (does not sound too intense)

  • Migrating from an HP Compaq nc6000 business notebook, circa 2004

  • Budgeting $400-$700

  • PC only (no Mac)

  • Casual gaming only (namely, Flash-based Facebook games)--desktop will be where real gaming occurs

  • Matte screen (as opposed to glossy, so it works decent outdoors)

  • Intel i5 or above or equivalent AMD
Thanks for any insights!
