Great embedded wireless, stable environment, lots of features
Not as light as I thought, so-so battery and not so easy to use touchpad

First of all, please understand that this is an ultraportable and you're not going to find super speakers on it or a 3ghz processor. Also, wanting an ultraportable means you want to take it around with you a lot. By all means consider the weight of the laptop you choose.
Price: $1300 with tax
Wireless: never gets cut. very stable
DVDRW: Not fast because the laptop is small but many counterparts are only CD/dvd rom
battery: I'd say more around 3-4 hours
touchpad: A smaller Sony was better but it's ok
Weight: Not a 3pound but a 4pound. You would shellout an extra $500-%700 for 3pounder.
Screen: very very nice
XP: turns on kind of slow but turn off unnecessary features
Processor: Not a celeron but a DUO CORE PENTIUM
Design: Not the greatest. A Sony looks all shiny and bling but again, you pay $1000 more.
To summarize: After doing all my research, I narrowed myself down to a Touchpad, Dell M1210, Sony 11.1" (the smallest one around) and this. I chose this because:
1. Touchpad: Takes 1-3weeks to arrive? Oh come on. And I read complaints here that they never arrived and people had to keep calling Lenovo. Where is Lenovo any way? In China? Please.
2. Dell: M1210 is the XPS of Dell. They won't even give me an embedded wireless included. Adding that feature cost $200 right there. Besides, it's not that light.
3. Sony: I love that 11.1". However, $2500 with tax? That's another $1200 I have to pay (double)and it just wasn't worth it and I thought it just might be a little too smaller. Also, Sony parts are all so expensive that in the end, everything included this little guy would've cost $3000.
That's why I chose this Toshiba. It's working great. No problems.
