    umm?, i think my friend will buy ibm's, $1800
    hp's is not so good as ibm's. hp's is bigger and heavyer.
    Some friends of mine sometimes joke hp means hot pig.

    $1500 are quite enough budget to buy a very good laptop. For that price, or somewhat less, make sure that the processor is not Celeron, but a Centrino, P4, or better an AMD 64bit. It should have a DVD-RW, HD > = 80GB, RAM >= 512 MB, Graphics Card >= 128MB, a pretty large monitor, should be pretty light, and last but not least a durable battery.

    No, a notebook like what you describe will be around $2200.

    You can get an iBook.
