Hi all,
I'm planning to buy a laptop which is easy to travel with (Ultra light) with following specs:
• Intel Core 2 Due T7700 or T8300 (minimum);
• 2Ghz CPU speed (minimum);
• 2GB RAM (minimum);
• Stand-alone Graphic Card (not shared) with 256MB graphics memory;
• 15” WXGA screen (minimum);
• DVD/RW all-in-one writer and
• Two adapters and/or one adapter/one docking station
• Genuine Windows Vista.
• Energy saver
• 14" screen or less (maximum)
I have bought Toshiba Satellite A300- 15B. It is not a good choice since its battery time is very short and it is extremely heavy weight.

What do you advice? :)


Regards,

Budoor

The best ultra light PC in my opinion is the Asus eePC to me if it has a 15" screen its not ultra light its just a normal sized laptop. Check out dell they make a nice range of decent 15" laptops.

Sorry, I have mentioned 15" in the specs. I meant 14" or less.

An Eee would be a good option then, the new ones have 10" screens and Atom processors, only 1 gig of ram but in an ultralight that is all you need and it can be upgraded.

I know I'm two days late, but Dell has their new 9" netbook - I'd check it out.

Dell makes nice 14" and smaller notebooks that are really light and have fairly good battery life. Also, if you wanted to stray from Windows Vista, you could get the MacBook air which is probably the lightest and thinnest notebook ever made(so far).

I checked out the 9" Dell after reading this thread and I have to say I'm pretty impressed, but sadly it does not meet your RAM requirements. However, their Inspiron 13" looks like it fits your needs, perhaps check that one out?
