Hi all,

Moderators may think I'm rude of posting soo many threads about the same topic..I'm sorry for that, please PM me if you have any comment :cry: 

Other than that, I am still looking for a new laptop, but with the requirements below, which has changed since. and please, no unaccepted brands like HP, stated below. and also please proivde me with several choices, like 3 or 4 or 5+ best. :)  Thank you all!

1_What is your budget?

2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?

3_What screen resolution do you want?
Won't matter

As portable as possible.

Word processing, internet (facebook, youtube, etc...), skype, basic photo editing (such as cropping, brightness/contrast)
Require 2GB+ RAM minimum. Require a processor clock speed of 1.6GHz or more, family doesn't matter, so that means no processors such as SU7300 1.3GHz, so it means I will take a T5500 processor 1.6GHz.

Won't matter. 120GB minimum

9_If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.

Not accepting brands at all:
HP/Compaq - Problems with hardware such as hard drive failures and...overheating
