I am looking into 13" laptops which I would use both for work (hence the small size and the importance of keeping the weght low) and for my personal use (including some gaming). I got interested in Alienware laptops since they seem to be performing very well but they don't do less than 15" (and are very heavy). I saw some Dell XPS which looks interesting but am unsure of buying from them.
I need a very fast processor, very fast hard disk, possibly a LED screen, DVD drive does not necessarily have to be internal, and it would be important to have access to a docking station to use when in the office. RAM would have to be at least 3Gb. I live in Italy.
Is there any smallish brand of enthusiasts which makes very solidly built and best-performing laptops out there?
