    I recommend Averatec, all of their laptops are light and they are very cheap.

    I'd suggest any of the Arima clones. eMachines M6810 for example. Solid machines, a bit heavy though.

    Just to clarify.

    USD 1,000 right?

    Which state will the laptop be shipped to?

    For $1,000 you should be able to get:

    Intel Pentium-M Centrino 1.6 GHz
    512MB RAM
    40GB Hard Drive
    Combo CDRW/DVDROM or maybe DVD Burner
    TV Out
    15.4" widescreen or 17" LCD display
    WiFi card 802.11b/g

    Are you looking for a regular sized laptop or something small and very portable?
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?

    Or for that price he could get something like the following:

    Pentium 4 - 3.06ghz HT
    1gb RAM
    17" Widescreen display
    nVidia Geforce FX 5700 Go w/ 64mb
    80GB HD
    DVD-R/RW Burner
    Windows Media Center Edition

    If only he wanted something slightly used... (hint hint)

    Hey RossMAN

    Ya USD 1000.

    I am looking at Intel Pentium-M Centrino, 512MB RAM, with DVD-R/W and ofcourse want it to be portable. May be weighing less than 7lbs for sure. Could you suggest some brand and some store where I would get a good deal.

    Thanks

    Jerry,

    To find local deals I would check your Sunday newspaper for the sales ads.

    Dell Small Business had a great deal on the Inspiron 9300 loaded with Intel Centrino 1.6GHz, 512MB, 40GB, DVD Burner, 17" Display, X300 128MB, 802.11g and Windows XP Home for only $899 after $200 rebate. But that deal ended last night

    That was a great deal but the 9300 is a desktop replacement laptop and not that "portable".

    Dell Small Business currently has an outrageous deal on the Inspiron 700m and Latitude D510 laptops. I would go for the Latitude D510 and here is a review. The Latitude is Dell's business series which has better build quality than the consumer oriented Inspiron series.

    Anyone can order from Dell Small Business, all they require is a business name that's it. There is no verification, no TIN required or any other business information.

    Dell Latitude D510
    • Intel® Pentium® M Processor 730 (1.60GHz) w/ 15.0 XGA Display
    • Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition, SP2, with media
    • 512MB DDR2 400MHz SDRAM, 2 DIMMS
    • 8X DVD+/-RW w/ Sonic Digital Media™ and Cyberlink PowerDVD™
    • 40GB Hard Drive, 9.5MM, 5400RPM
    • Dell Wireless™ 1370 802.11b/g WLAN miniPCI Card
    • 4 Cell Primary Battery
    • Internal 56K Modem
    • 1 Year Mail-In Economy Plan warranty


    $1,089 - $150 rebate = $939

    Save $90 if you downgrade to the combo DVD-ROM/CD-RW instead of DVD Burner.

    If you can wait, maybe Dell should have another hot deal on the Inspiron 6000 or 9300 models. So far this year they've had a few $750 off $1499 coupon codes. If those coupons return again you could buy a nicely loaded Inspiron 6000 with 15.4" widescreen LCD and DVD Burner for around $800 with no rebate hassles!
    What's your budget?

    I currently own an Acer model that weighs roughly 6 lbs and has a battery life of 6 hours! It's in the other room, but if you're interested in the exact model I'll get the info for you. I think it cost me roughly $1200 CDN and has the same specs as Ross's first post.
