I need someone with great research skills/I.T knowledge to compile a comprehensive and detailed list/report of notebooks suited to my needs hopefully by boxing day.

I need a laptop for uni/school but also allows me to play some light to moderate graphic games.

1. must be light weight (must not exceed 2.6kg)
2. thinness and portable (notebooks and ultrabooks)
3. good ergonomics
4. excelllent battery life
5. power (processor ideally i5)
[Content Moderated] st (nothing more than $800) and value for money- good deals
7. known problems of notebook (eg. overheating) - must last a long time without any significant problems
8. Screen: 15.6"
9. Style: doesn't look like a brick but modern
10. places to buy for best deals in Victoria

you will be rewarded for your work that you produce.

The only one that seems to match your criteria for something very lightweight seems to be the ASUS S505CM-XX188H for $770 at Centrecom (Sunshine). The MLN deals aren't that flash for ultrabooks (e.g. ASUS S505CM-XX189P which is cheaper elsewhere), and knowing MSY, they will likely be out of stock.

Which area of Melbourne are you located, just in case there are store related specials that the person assigned should look out for.

don't really mind because I have a windows 7 cd.
but to save any trouble would prefer windows 7.
Probably best you also add the criteria that it should have Windows 7 rather than Windows 8 if you're planning on running games, and want to avoid any compatibility issues?
