What Dell laptop would you recommend?

Question

I want to purchase a Dell laptop. Budget $2,000. Primarily I want a wireless system, websurfer, e-mail sending, editing and sending digital photos, hosting my own website. This would be a desk top replacement. I would probably play some games, rated for teens or everyone, burn a few cd's. I guess mostly a play machine. What would you suggest?
