Time for a laptop

I need to buy a laptop to study overseas for sixth months. All of my previous computers have been desktops which I've assembled, so I have little experience buying pre-built machines. Requirements inside.

Basically I'd like to spend as little as possible while meeting my needs, with the upper limit of $1000. I'll use the computer for internet, music notation (Finale), and multitrack recording/mixing (mostly demos), as well as possibly doing some synth stuff in a program like Reason. All I require in the way of sound hardware is a line-in jack; I've got the mics and preamp. I'd like to be able to play games (I'm into FPSes), but I know it's difficult to get enough horsepower for that in a laptop without spending a lot. Recommendations for specific models, product lines, or companies are appreciated.
