Suggestions for a new laptop?

I'm in the market for a new laptop - the old Asus is nearing the end of it's usefulness.

It's what I'll use for all my photography needs, as well as the rest of it - I don't have a desktop.  Can a decent/good laptop be found for $1,000?  If not, what should I be sure to look for feature/hardware wise?

Also, when buying a laptop is the hard drive capacity crucial, or do people use external drives successfully for photo storage and manipulation?
