portability... basically web surfing and word processing type things. I just don't know anything about the brand name...

Looks to me like it's getting so-so reviews. It has what you want, but the company doesn't seem to have a glorious track record with warranties, and from what I *see* from browsing google searches, some people have had to return/repair them.

But people tend to complain more when it's broken, so it's hard to say.

It's twice as expensive from the Apple Educational store, but if you can afford it I recommend a Powerbook with the AppleCare warranty.

Re: mac-envy!
uh, yeah, with extra batteries and stuff, I'd like to pay less than 1k. And I'm not a fan of the mac os.

If you want to spend a couple hundred dollars more for a new one, Dell has some deals up on Slickdeals.net.

I didn't want to willingly advocate Dell, since I've *heard* their service has really dropped over the past few years. However, I bought a refurbished Latitude D400 from them last year, it's a P4-M 1.4, 512MB RAM, an' 60 GB hard drive.. I think 5400 RPM.

Only problem is ALL DRIVES are external, which is great for battery but.. nugh. Built in Wifi, as well -- Dell Trumobile 1400 Dual-Band miniPCI card. Batteries last me approx 3 hours running wifi with screen at around 80% brightness -- not the greatest, but I also think I've trained the battery wrong.

I personally would prefer to save up and buy a tablet PC. Those are SeXY! Or Wacom's new LCD/Tablet combo screens... *drools*
