I have an aging Toshiba lappy and it's heavy! 7.2 lbs. Normal aspect 15 incher. Anyway, I'm an intel fan and this one has an AMD chip. I don't game on it at all, just internets and some spreadsheets and such. How bout this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834147662) as a replacement?

Nice and light, good res....

:lol: You find 7.2lb/2.3kg too heavy? What a pussy, you need to get 2 2kg weight dumbells and do 30 reps everyday for 1 week then you can handle the laptop weight. :p

The one you suggested are not good one for $869.99, it used outdated CPU and 14.1 inch TFT and also you really dont need 4GB RAM and 250GB hard disk to do the spreadsheets. How about this much better spec than you suggested with bigger 15.4 inch screen, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB RAM and weight only just 6.82lb/3kg. Not much weight difference for $649.99 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834110312).

LOL, it's not for me. For the wifey :) She want's something light. I would say any 15.4 she would complain about, that's why I want to go with a 14. If I can find a 15.4 in the low 6lb range I might go for it.

after having one AMD "powered" laptop i would never buy one again, unless AMD makes HUGE changes

that thing goes through a battery like crazy, and performance on battery is very slow

You want light, there it is. I have a 701 4G and absolutely love it. Portable, cheap, you'll take it everywhere. Went to a doctor's appointment yesterday and when I parked I popped it open to check for a wireless network. Found an open network and was able to surf away in the waiting room. Even caught some of sportscenter on the sling box. Heh.

Thanks for the tip. I've never owned an AMD chip.

if it uses mini PCI-E, you can always change it

Out of curiosity, why would you need wireless N?

FYI, the wireless range on the EEE is very good.
