Need a good video editing laptop ($600 limit)

I'm looking to purchase a laptop for HD video editing (Sony Vegas), media viewing (DVD, Internet, movie files, ect), light gaming (not too much into pc gaming). My price limit is $600 and under. I'm planning on doing a lot of video editing so I'm going to need something capable of it. I was going to get a desktop, but I don't like the fact of having it stay in my room (very small) Here are a few specs that I need.
16:9 Screen (high quality)
Decent gfx card (need it for the type of editing I'm doing)
DVD burner (dl would be a plus)
Lit keyboard (not needed but would be a plus)
HDMI (needed unless it's a lot cheaper to go without)
it ALS needs to stay very cool. My current laptop (Dell vostro 1000) is suffering from overheating and 100% CPU usage on startup.
so that's pretty much it. I also have a question... For HD editing do I need a good gfx card.
