I'm looking for a really slim, light laptop, anyone know of any they would recommend? I lloked at the Dell Inspiron 510 but think it looks quite big, anyone know?

I wouldn't recommend Dell to anyone TBH - I had a problem with my Inspiron laptop and their aftersales service is quite frankly, crap! and annoyingly located in India.
I've just bought a new dinky, lightweight laptop from PC world, they've loads of offers on at the mo

agree about the aftersales service on dell BUT I still think their laptops are much better than others.

I have got a lovely slim silver samsung XO5. Got it from comet. With 5 years insurance it was £999. Love it to bits.

Ooops - just got my new Dell yesterday! I was so distraught after I dropped my Samsung down the stairs that I let dp do all the shopping around and chosing. Seems OK so far!

I've had mine for a while so don't know about the newer models but it's a Compaq presario. Overall, it's been a good machine. I used it a ton in graduate school with no problems.

I've got a Sony Vaio, and don't think I would ever have another make, the customer service is also second the none, and, they have a web site which you can go on and try and solve the problem first.

Work laptio is an IBM Thinkpad which is small and compact.

We recently bought and Advent from PC World for £699 which is good too. Comes with wireless card, dvd re-writer and memory card slot.
