Advice on light-weight notebook


I'm looking for A light weight notebook. It doesn't have to be super ultra light weight, but probably a twelve-ish incher. I've been looking at the Dell XPS M1210, but it seems a little pricey for the specs. Am I wrong? Averatecs seem well-priced, but aren't easy to find where I am. Any advice on others to look at?

Avertec was Sotec. Why it matters.

The name change was to get away from their old support and parts issues. I think they are a dodgey company and will stick with "names" for laptops for now.

I really like the smaller Macbook. It's very complete and at 1099 not high priced.

Great quality

The Thinkpad looks really good, but might be a bit expensive. It seems there aren't many budget ultraportables, though, so I might just have to suck it up and spend the money.
