Opinions on ultraportable laptops for law school?
« on: July 11, 2007, 12:19:45 PM »
Hey-

I was curious what everyone thought about going with the really small laptop route for next year.  I currently have an Insprion 8600 which was great when it never left my desk, but it really seems like it'll kick my ass hauling it around.  I know the Lenovo X series is highly regarded, and I've heard good things about the Dell D430.  I was wondering if any of ya'll are going with the 12.1 route or have experience taking notes with a tiny computer.  Thanks a ton.

I went with the x61s...the weight was a big factor and that comp is light with a full sized keyboard. I may get an external monitor for room use/movies.

I have one of the Sony Vaio TX series laptops.  They are ULTRA portable.  I really love it, and the screen is absolutely beautiful and very clear.  As long as you don't have large hands or fingers, it is definitely a laptop you should consider if portability is an issue.
