Hey, not really sure where I should have posted this so I settled here.
Basicly I have crappy handwriting, so the school have told me I need a laptop for my GSCE course and exam.
I can spend no more than Â£1,500 on it (around $2,750), and for this I could buy a desktop replacent. However what I want is a ultra protable one I can put in my bad, wieghing no more than 2kg (about 4lb) (preferably around 1.5kg (3lb). I dont really need that much power, but being able to run a few older games and do some basic Photoshop would be nice, so around 1-2ghz should be ok. I am worried however that they keyboard would be to cramped on the very small laptops to to able to type efficiantly in a exam, in this case, maybe a bigger one, but still light would be better. Also battery life is very important, I am not sure if 3 hours is enough, maybe the Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P7010 would be better at 5 hours.
I looked at the Dell Latitude X1, anybody know what Dell laptops are like?
Any other suggestions for ultra portable laptops under Â£1,500?
Also, does anybody have any suggestions how I could keep it secure from getting stolen (like are there any locks etc), as it is clearly a item people at my school would want to steal.
