    Hi guys,

    Looking for opinions/suggestions for a ultra light notebook. I need
    something to carry around all day and hence lightness is the key. The only
    thing that is essential is it must have wifi. I've been looking at things
    like the IBM x40 series and the asus m5200, both around 1.5kg. Does anyone
    know of anything else I should have a look at?

    Thanks for any suggestions,
    S.

    I went through this recently and came up with this .. I think the IBM X40 is
    the best choice of the light weight options all options have wireless.

    Imaginer there is a tab instead of a space between each item and you will
    have a table. (Just one of the idiosyncronasies of posting in 'plain text').

    at about 2kg...all for $1695

    Dont know if that makes it into the ultra light weight area but its damn
    good value
