Default Re: A new laptop

I'm not sure whether or not HP makes notebooks in this category.

Be aware that you're getting a business notebook if you buy a Thinkpad. It's a very functional notebook that doesn't cater to consumers.

The Dell XPS M1330 has gotten very good reviews so far. It's gained a pretty large fan base.

I think that would fit into the ultra light category.

I wouldn't mind having one for word processing and e-mail.

Both Dell XPS M1330 and Sony Vaio TZ are great choices, but if you're looking for a durable and reliable notebook - then look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X61.

Thinkpads are renown for their reliability and sturdiness among business users. If you don't mind using a trackpoint, then take a good look at the X61.
Uh, the Dell XPS M1330 is four pounds. Last I talked to Bruce, he rejected a four pound laptop due to it's heaviness.

I'm just trying to help out here man, and I know that Bruce won't want a four pound laptop.

Alright, then the Dell XPS M1330 is a fine choice. I agree with the fact that it isn't as huge or heavy as I thought it was. I assumed, so my bad.

Still, 4lbs, coming off the vaio sz...
