hi, i am looking for an ultraportable laptop to use on the go, have any of you got any ideas, not on a tight budget.

Although the minimum specs i want are:

10" inch screen, normal or widescreen
intel core 2 duo
windows xp
bluetooth if possible
dvd writer to be included internal or external
1 gig ram
100 gig hdd
built in webcam would be nice

Please if any of u have any good recomendations i would be happy to see

There is no 10" screen (Unless you get the eee PC... but that doesn't suit you)
The minimum now is 15.4" widescreen.

Macs have nice 12" monitors. The macbooks are really nice, too.
AND!!!! You can run XP on those natively. In fact, it fits every need you mention above.

Except for the "tight budget" part :p

Actually, the macbooks aren't so bad. The pro versions are more expensive.

But with the student discount, you can ge the macbook black, which is a great computer, for about $1,300, I believe.

//shrug-- you get what you pay for.

Remember, macs might be expensive, but I've never heard anyone complain about buying one after they've used it.

I agree with this except the OP states:

...not on a tight budget...

OH, heh, that's what I get for reading too fast.

But you can get almost twice the computer with a PC for less than 1300 of the macbook.

I have used them all, not starting a war, to each his own and all that, but I haven't seen a mac product that can touch my PC and I still have (after 4 years with it) yet to break 1000 bucks on it. (internal product wise, we don't count software and childrens games)
