Im going to be an engineering student at Berkeley next year and am trying to find a good laptop to take to school. I need one with good performance mainly for school, interenet, maybe a little music. Nothing like gaming or things like that. I'm planning on lugging it around everywhere so I need one thats very portable and lightweight. My budget is probably less than 1100. I'm considering the Dell latitude D620, however am worried its not as portable as I need. Are there any suggestions on a laptop to fit my needs.
