Appreciate your experience in the laptop, mostly to download photos, some editing with photoshop and access net to forum.
Should not be too heavy, neither too basic, like the netbook, which I consider too limited in speed and storage space.

A pre-owned laptop -where to get this for photography-also would be good.Thanks.

Netbooks too slow to use Photoshop and LR right? Anyway, I am using an old P4 to do PS and LR work. It is HELLA SLOW! Almost unbearable.

2000 is actually a very good budget for a notebook. If you say under 1000 it will be a lot more challenging.

Ya, but the new version seems like a pretty good upgrade to the aluminum body.
Sleeker and able to dissipate the heat faster. Probably gives you a better durability for travelling too.

a Dell Mini 9 running Leopard 10.5.6 off a 32G SSD. 2G RAM. 16G SD as Image Library. wt: 1kg. 8.9" LED display.

Performance: every bit as good if not better than my friend's MacBook Air. Software: Aperture with Nik complete plug-in.

Cost: Dell mini 9 - $499; 6 hrs of h-work (h stands for hard-) is priceless :sweatsm:


MBAir nano sitting on a 15" MacBook Pro for size comparison.
