Since I want a portable laptop, I want it to be light and durable as I might be rough with it. I want it to be similar to the Macbook Air which is strong, durable (aluminum case), light, and good performance, but at a lower price. I also want it to have at least an Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB - 4GB RAM. Core i-series is mainly what I've been looking for.
