    Default Best 15-ish inch ultrabook/light laptop

    Price max is like 2.5k

    Will need to use it for the next 2/3 years at least. and will need it to be portable for uni. Thanks

    Will need it to run games at decent settings. I know lightness / gaming has a compromise but i wont be playing games on max graphics etc on my laptop. I already have a gaming PC, just wont be using it all the time

    Dell XPS 15 has a 750m, you should be able to play most games at low/med. I just got a gigabyte p35k which has a 765m and runs games well too. Only problem with these thin laptops is that they tend to overheat. The new macbook pro also has the 750m but I don't know how much it costs. If samsung every haswell refreshes the ativ book 8 in the US it'll have the 8870m which is also a very powerful mobile graphics card.

    Regular laptop + backpack or something. You are not going to carry it in your hands the whole time, will you?

    I was thinking Samsung ATIV 9 Plus or Asus Zenbook UX51Vz,

    I'm still in highschool right now so idk about uni but all I know is i'll be using this laptop for a while..so at least till 2nd year uni. (I'll also need it to be able to run AutoCAD)

    Should I wait for more haswells to come out or grab it during winter break/boxing day? I feel like during the summer/this summer, the back to school deals were all bogus.

    I'd suggest getting the laptop right before you start uni. With a bit of luck, the extra power could last you a couple of months further.
