... Thin and Light
Thin and Light are the 'mid-size' group of Notebooks. Laptops or Notebooks come in all shapes and sizes; to make your job easier, they have been classified into different groups; here's a quick rundown:
Tablet PC (smallest) Size of a paper tablet or notepad, less than 3 pounds.
UltraPortable (small) <11" x <10" Less than 1.3 inches thick, less than 4 pounds.
Thin and Light (mid-size) 11-14" x <11" 1 to 1.4 inches thick, from 5 to 7 pounds.
Desktop Replacements (largest) >13" x >11" More than 1.5 inches, more than 7 pounds and up
Thin and Light Notebooks offers more features or functions than the Utraportables. Thus, they are somewhat heavier and bulkier. If size and weight is not a consideration for your needs - you should try a Thin and Light Notebook.
Most of the better models comes with a Intel Pentium 4 or 4-M. Battery life should be a consideration and the new Pentium 4-M uses less power and gives longer life to your batteries.
Keep in mind the traveling weight of these notebooks, if you have to carry external drives, docking ports, etc. will add 2 or 3 pounds to your weight.
Here's a great YouTube video from Linus Tech Tips giving you an example of a Thin & Light Notebook entitled:
