# Small Laptops

Ok, I already have a laptop, but I want a smaller one.

The one I have is a Dell Inspirion with a 14.1 inch screen.

I'm looking for one that's like 13.3 or even better one that is 12.1 inches. I want a small laptop. The weight of my laptop is just too much. It hovers close to 7 pounds.

I know they have small Mac's and I've heard Dell D420's are small too, but are there any other options. The Mac's are cheaper than the D420's so there has to be cheaper PC's out there.

Thanks.

Get the Averatec 2300. 12.1", 4 pounds, 1GB RAM, AMD Turion X2 (Dual 1.8Ghz) , hardrive 100 GB SATA, NVIDIA 6400, bright hi-def screen, good feeling durable keyboard and trackpad for about 900$. It is not the smallest laptop in the 12.1" category, but its performance is way beyond any other non 17" laptop. Every Sony Vaio I have seen is painfully slow, I would not want to spend 2000$ on that.

I'm probably going to go with the Averatec. That looks sick.

You can get it as a dual boot system Linux and Windows for about $100 more. That was the lightest laptop I have seen. Once you learn about *nix, you might not want to go back to Windows.

Jan 26, 2007 ### JasonRox They're are mighty expensive though, and the hardware it comes with is hardly worth it at all. Well, it's not worth it at all. 11. Jan 26, 2007 ### Anttech what you do base that perception on? 12. Jan 26, 2007 ### graphic7 13. Jan 26, 2007 ### -Job- I recently bought a Sony Vaio. I got it because it wasn't that expensive, was small and had pretty good stats: Dual Core 2Ghz CPU, 1Gb RAM, 80Gb HD. It's very lightweight. 14. Jan 26, 2007 ### -Job- 15. Jan 26, 2007 ### graphic7 My guess would be around$15,000-\$20,000 for a base configuration given its a Sun v215 (http://www.sun.com/servers/entry/v215/) in a "laptop" form-factor.
