dell xps1210 would be great? get a great full coverage warranty, i owned a 700m (2 models older than the 1210) and it was great, never had a problem and so effin light, 12 inch ws, extended 8 cell? i think or 9 cell, lasted over 3 hours, with modding you could get over 4-5 i bet
outlet has a few for a reasonable price, unsure if you can get a warranty with outlet
if your buget allows, get a thinkpad
