If we're talking about spotting, might as well consider UAVs. They don't have to be fully simulated, but just a controllable camera flying around in a UAV pattern would be cool, at least for some missions.

Getting killed by hidden enemies will happen in any games where kills can be done very quickly from a distance. That includes realistic games. No way around that other than to minimize the effect by playing better. Of course, the game can contribute a little by providing more realistic maps, which will at least make those situations more realistic (that is, when you do get killed by someone you can't see, it'll at least be situation more likely to have happened in real life).

1000$ doesn't sound like something that can buy you a laptop to run arma on any settings. Maybe low/very low.

Even a more expensive one with i7 and GTX 660m might not cut it (though the game will probably be more than playable, just don't expect it to look too good).

Don't give up on an SSD. It bumps up the price, sure, but you really want one. 250GB minimum. If you need extra storage, a bigger SSD will be very expensive, but a normal hard drive will both be much slower (Arma won't like it), and will be less durable for traveling.

Then again, with an expensive laptop, it hurts even more when it gets stolen...
