I need a new laptop for work, and the only two features I really need are an anti-glare/matte screen and a backlit keyboard. Screen should be 14 inches or bigger. Anybody know of any models that won't break the bank? I can find lots of laptops with backlit keyboards and some with matte screens, but combining the two features usually puts me into the world of gaming computers, which is just more horsepower than I need. I'd be paying through the nose for a bunch of features I'd never use.

I know I can buy the anti-glare film for a glossy screen, but I had that once on another laptop and I found it wasn't nearly as good as just having the anti-glare screen to begin with.

Would be great to keep the cost under $1,000.

Thanks for any advice.
