I'm looking for a notebook for business use and I won't be playing any games on it (maybe tetris or Pac-man but nothing that requires much power). Basically I need it to run Word/Excel, msn messenger, and at most 1 or 2 more programs at the same time and I'm looking for advice on what to get under the hood. Like I said, it doesn't need to be a beast but I don't want somthing that's slow either and battery life is important. I do want to get 1-2 gig of memory for sure. I noticed that the Sentia doesn't have the newest intel chips which, for me, is a plus because it keeps the cost down and I'm not sure I need the higher performance...am I wrong there, should I wait to see if the update the Sentia's chip sets? What processor speed should I get? HDD speed (5400/7200)? I've never had a notebook before so I'm not really sure what I need...thanks for your help.
