Help: I need a lap-top for doing overdubs (protools session) at home.

The limitations/requirements:
It needs to be a laptop (I need small and portable)
It will only be recording 1-2 tracks at a time. MAYBE 4 on a rare occasion. Minimal plugins used. I won't be requiring this to run lots of channels.
I need it to be stable and idiot proof. I am not particularly tech savvy and don't want to spent time wrestling with hacking systems/software or driver issues.
I need low latency.

I would LOVE it if I could continue to my Apogee Rosetta for my I/O.

I used to run Nuendo in a Dell SC400 Server with 2 large monitors. But now I need small, portable, and protools.

I would love to keep the price UNDER $1000.

A refurbished MAC laptop?

Please let me know what you've used that fits the bill, who sells it, any other suggestions.

Thanks.
