Built in card reader! :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
Note that ultralight laptops are usually disgustingly expensive. Light ones are still ok, in my book.

Reach a balance/compromise. You don't have to get ultra light mar. Light is just a bit more, I doubt you'd actually notice the weight. In this world, improvements come at an exponential price. At first from heavy --> medium price difference generally minimal, then for a few grams or few tens of grams difference the price is WOAH flying up fast. =D

PC Show?

Depends, sometimes very attractive offers but actually come to think of it what you want would usually go for pretty good prices at PC shows from what I've seen.

Do you need it urgently?

for me, when i was looking for a notebook, i decided to make lightweight a priority since i already have a desktop when i work at home and i carry it on my work trips (office issued notebook CMI....too heavy, old)
my acer travelmate works for me. it weighs a little more than 1kg with the 2hr batt on and a little more if i use the 4hr batt. downside is, the screen is 12" and the drive is external.

there are lighter ones out there, notably from fujitsu, panasonic and lg, but their light weight to me is put off by their huge price tag.

and get one with a 3 year warranty...i changed my motherboard twice in 2 years.:dunno: probably because normally i use the notebook on the bed or with a cushion underneath it to prop it higher when i use it on the sofa....the trapped heat kills the MB faster ?:think:

waiting for my desktop to konk off and replace it with a 17" deskstop replacement notebook:devil:

Well not really ugent, just that I'd prefer to view pics asap(cos bigger view than lcd even if 2.5) rather all the way home dnld to pc then realise something not so right with afew pics(then how rush back to the scene again:sweat: ).
