    Help me select a laptop please

    Hello everyone,

    So I'm deciding to buy a laptop. The 4 items I care about are:

    1- Weight: about 1.5kg is fine (I may go up to 2kg if you recommend me but the lighter the better)
    2- Battery: at least 6hours (for when I'm on the airplane or in the airport)
    3- Price: 600-700 (I'll go up to 800 if you really recommend me )
    4- Average ability to run regular softwares! NO gaming at all.

    However, I don't have that much information about the processors and graphic cards and brands.
    So I managed to make a short! list of some laptops with the above information about them.
    I know can takes you a long time to look at all of them and go through all the details but regarding the processor and graphic card, are there anyones you would recommend (in a cursory look )? I really appreciate any advice. (Also, could you please give me like two recommendations, just in case one is not available ...)

    Thank you so much

    I'm personally thinking about either:
    Lenovo IdeaPad 14" 3rd Gen Intel Core i5-3317U Ultrabook (U410)
    Toshiba 13.3" Intel Core i5-2467M Laptop - Refurbished
    VAIO T series
    !!!!!!!!!! because they are so light with about 8 hours batteries!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi there BB!

    Hope that you and yours are all well.

    Sorry for the delay in posting, but my wife has been in hospital for the last 3 weeks.........and not the same one

    Anyways, on to the subject?

    You have requirements 1 and 2, which are actually contradictory....... a long life means a heavy battery, and that is how it is!

    This also contradicts your price considerations, as the long life batteries are expensive, as they are heavy.

    How much of a "road warrior" device do you NEED ? 6 hours in an airport...........hell man, go and buy a pr0n magazine?

    I have a cheap "portable desktop" AND a netbook.............maybe that is the way to go..........or with one of these "fondleslabs" ?

    My "laptop" will do about 90 minutes.......... the netbook around 4 hours........a fondleslab COULD give you 6-8............. I guess it boils down to what you want to use it for?

    How is the FX4100 BTW?

    Cheers,

    Johnno,

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Thank you so much Nihil. So sorry to hear about that . Hope she's doing well now . I bought a lappy this morning. The specification says 8hours for battery and it's fairly light! we'll see how it works though
