In a few weeks, about August 14th, Dell will release the new ultra portable system, called the Inspiron 700m. It will have a wide 12in screen, won't have "bells and whistles" per say, very basic... neat thing is that it will have a shiny reflective screen. The coating will allow for clearer picture and video playback. It will also use a WUXGA display (Wide-Format Ultra Extended Graphics Array)... that's just a big term for very crisp, clear, picture by itself, the wide is due to the fact that it's wider horizontialy than verticly, so it's more rectangular in shape. If you need something larger, little more heft, maybe an Inspiron 1150? It's very affordable, not very heavy by normal standards 4-5lbs, very basic, and has wireless options with a nice 15in UXGA (Not wide) display.
