Can you help me find a laptop

I need one for everyday usage that includes watching movies, skyping, sometimes playing games and internet browsing. Therefore I would prefer one with USB 3.0 for loading material through usb's. Intel i5, a clear HD 15'6 inch screen, preferably a little lighter than average; weight wise. Thank you.

And your budget is?

Have you bothered to look at the Dell website, for instance, to see what's available?
