Ultra Thin Laptop??

By DonDefy ·
Hi there!

Not sure if I should post this in discussions or questions but ill post in both just in case , apologize in advance if that?s going to cause an inconvenience for some

I was wondering what would be a good "mega" light laptop?

The thing is, I want to get one for my girlfriend.

I?m looking for something really, really light but with long battery life and a good screen (like the one in Asus G1Sa, I can't remember the exact screen model).

I need it to be quite fast (I?d prefer for it to have above 1.6GHz Freq and more than 2 gigs of ram).

A SSD would be preferable :)

She mostly needs it for typing and browsing yee old interweb but I?d like it be able to handle more than that just in case ) (Like heavy film editing or graphical rendering (that?s for me not her ))

Any ideas on make and model? It doesn?t have to be in existence yet, maybe heard of something similar out there or about to come out?

P.S. I have been looking at for last couple of week and a lot of them fail on a good screen or other option i.e. The Dell Adamo might look sexy but the screen Has bad viewing angles and I think it gets hot pretty fast or Lenovo ThinkPad T400, nice specs but its but ugly.

So far I kind of like Acer's TravelMate 6293, but its Acer and I don?t think the company is very reliable ^^ (Yes I am very picky)^^

Yours
Don Defy

I'd prefer it to be well under 3 kg, but 3 kg's the sky ^^

Screen size can?t be below 12 inches.

HDD min is 64 SSD.

As for OS, any will do except Apple and UNIX, (I can install those later myself :) )

Ill have a look at the link later let you know what I think 

Do you have one of them or how did you find out about it?

I?m not familiar with hp at all, only 2 of the people I know have hp laptops

Which do you think is better HP Elite 2730p or HP EliteBook 8530p ?

Do they have over heating problems? Where relative to the keyboard are the CPU and the hard drive is placed? i.e. By the return key or w,a,s,d keys etc.

What is the support like?

Hopefully I didn?t overload you ^^

Cheers for the help.

Try looking at the

MSI Megabooks or Benq Joybook Ranges.

These can be custom built to suit your needs or can be purchased as a Bare Bones System where you fit your choice of HDD, Optical Drive, CPU & RAM to get a Custom Built unit.

The MSI Megabooks are slim and light where as the Benq Joy books have a interesting Spackle Finish both have a full Keyboard with Numeric Keypads as per a normal Keyboard so they are easier to use.

Also with any NB you should always use a Cool Pad similar to this one from Antec as they stop the NB sucking dust and other crud into itself and blocking cooling airways as well as help cool the remainder of the NB. They will extend the NB life far beyond the Warranty Period and the unit will be ultra reliable if one of these are used 100% of the time that the NB is turned on.
