Help with potential laptop purchase

I'm in the market to buy a new laptop and I don't want to spend any more than $1,500. Something light (under 6lbs), lasting battery life (3hrs or more) and cool running. What would you guys suggest? Thanks

  1. what are you using it for? 14" 15" screen? wireless nic?
  2. Mostly just for internet surfing and running basic apps for school. I may use it for viewing movies and music from time to time. No gaming will be involved though.

  3. Pentium-M 1.4 (1.5) GHz, 384-512MB RAM, 15" Display, Separate Graphics Controller (not advanced, like Mobility Radeon 9000 etc.) Wireless/ethernet etc. Find one with all these, and then decide about the looks and reviews etc. Take a look at Dell, Compaq (HP)... Toshiba and IBM (more expensive)... perhaps not Sager... Acer could be worth a look. I say Compaq & Dell.


    Who's General Failure and why's he reading my disk?
