dell xps m140 vs hp pavilion dv1000

by tdye43 / March 28, 2006 5:49 AM PST

I am contemplating on buying xps m140 for its lightness,multimedia features, centrino processor, comfortable keyboard, good cnet rating. I do not intend to play games but for entertainment and small business use. I have used a dell before (dell d610) and found it to be pretty good.

I just heard about hp pavilion dv1000 and its good rating and features. I was wondering if the hp's display is narrrow angled?
Hp's dv1000 is definitely more appealing to the eyes. Are there any drawbacks in the dv1000 model, compared to xps m140 or otherwise?
does the remote control feature on dv1000 really have an edge over other laptops?

Any recommendations to other laptops in this range ,which are light ,around $1000, good performance?
