My former laptop was a Dell Inspiron E1505. I finally sold it because it was too bulky for carrying to school every days.
So now I'm looking for a new laptop with higher mobility and lower weight.
I've been looking for a netbook. These things are pretty cool, but the components inside them makes me scared a little bit. I have a desktop which is also a data server. I frequently need to compress/decompress large file to send it on my server. So my laptop would be a mobile terminal to access my personal server. Buying a netbook would make me feel like I was downgrading in performances instead of upgrading.
So I've turned myself toward the CULV laptops (you must keep in mind that battery life is the primary thing I'm looking for since I'm a student).
I've found the Lenovo U150. Small form factor, CULV, nice battery, but not available in Canada
Then, comes the Asus UL30-A2. 12 h battery life, very nice conception, 13.3" (I really don't want to go bigger than 13.3"). 3 pounds, which is acceptable and a HDMI port for my HDTV
I think I've found a good laptop for me.
I've found on the Internet in the last days that some units have a Wireless problem (Atheros chipset). If this problem occurs on my unit, I would change the Wireless card for an Intel mini-card, it would not be a problem.
So I'm asking you what do you think about this laptop ? I can get it for 844 $ CND with taxes shipped.
