Try the flipstart which is just a dream -> http://www.flipstartpc.com/ It weighs in at 1 pound.
At 2 pounds you see the MM20 http://www.sharpsystems.com/products/pc_notebooks/actius/mm/20/
I would appreciate some opinions about getting a new laptop.
I am specifically looking for a very lightweight machine that I will use as a secondary computer and for traveling. Ideally I would like something under 1.5 lb.
I need to be able to network it with my desk machine, WiFi connectibility and a CD Rom drive. I can deal with a half size screen since I will be using it for reading emails and accessing the Internet when I am out of the office. At home I would use an external keyboard, monitor and mouse if appropriate.
Thanks for the help,
