    Review the hp dm4x!

    Just a heads-up, but I think you’ve got the wrong image for the Acer Aspire AO722 ($379). No 11.6″ netbook is going to have a full number pad. That must be a 15.6″ or larger system pictured there.

    A pretty solid list, though I’m having a HP dv6zqe built with power-sipping AMD A6 Fusion processor

    Having been through college (or university if you want to be finnicky): get the 11-inch MacBook Air.

    Lugging around textbooks is bad enough; you want something that won’t double the weight of your bag. The small storage is about the only limitation for a student. Just wait until Apple refreshes the line with Core i5/i7 models — possibly this week.

    I think the Toshiba Portege is a better option at $799. All of these specs plus it’s only 3.2lbs.

    I think Samsung has been releasing some nice laptops lately… they aren’t even mentioned. Sure they look and feel like macbooks but they are half the cost, and lets face it… isn’t everyone trying to look and feel like a macbook?

    I’m sorry but that whole tear-dropped shape BS apple has going on is an UGLY design. I sure hope the iphone 5 isn’t tear-dropped shape. Seriously…. I like my laptop looking like a laptop, not something that can be easily crushed. I own a REGULAR macbook pro. Forget the macbook airs…. they are most likely to have problems.

    Does this laptop have a dual core? Can you use Skype?
