Hi. I hate to be this person.

First, this question is better suited in the Techies Lounge.

Second, being someone who has been searching for a laptop for quite some time now, I can tell you with a fair amount of certainty that you're not going to get a good laptop for what you want in that price range.

Something more around the $900 - $1000 mark.

2gb ram, Vista Ultimate/Business. Possibly something other than those Intel graphics.

The cd/dvd etch requirement pretty much limit you to HP and Toshiba AFAIK.

Photoshop is a resource hog. Keep that in mind. If you're going to be running Vista and Photoshop, I'd recommend at least 2GB of RAM.

>Have a webcam and burn cds with lightscribe...
You can buy these as USB or Firewire peripherals, probably for less than it would be built-in.

>heard alot of bad things about it that alot of programs wont run on vista
That's the case with any new OS. It's getting better by the day.
