If u can spend a little bit more, get the Asus UL30vt for around $600.

It comes in 2 configs:
UL30vt-x1(black) with 4600mah battery, about 7 hours
UL30vt-1a(silver) with 5600mah battery, about 9? hours

I own the black version, looks great, w/ the brushed black aluminum lid.
The glossy black finish is nice but fingerprints are noticeable.
The silver version is about $100 more. All other specs are the same.

cpu: intel core2duo su7300 1.3ghz dualcore (factory overclocks to 1.7ghz)
ram: 4gb ddr3
hdd: 500gb 5400rpm seagate momentus 5400.6 sata
gpu: switchable intel 4500HD / Nvidia 210
OS: windows7 64-bit
wifi b/g/n, bluetooth, HDMI/vga out, card reader, 1inch thick, 3.7lbs.

Although older, Intel's Core2Duo 'ULV' ultra low voltage chips will beat out any Atom or AMD netbook chip. The same applies to the Nvidia 210-- not the best graphics card, but much better than anything available on netbooks or onboard video. Plays 1080p with ease. Photoshop/WoW/Starcraft2 run smooth at medium settings.

If u want to spend even more, the JT/JC versions come with Intel i3/i5 processors and Nvidia 310 1gb graphics
WOW! That UL30vt-x1 is a really good laptop! Better battery life, better specs, bigger screen?! I'm not really seeing a downside.

Unfortunately the $500 mark is really my limit, but after seeing this I'm pondering the idea of saving up... Where'd you find the UL30vt-x1 for $600 though? I can't find it for less than $700 (just a simple Google search).

I noticed a couple other differences here:
The Lenovo comes with Windows 7 Professional which is a $99 upgrade for HP
The Lenovo baseline AMD 240 is not only slower its SINGLE-CORE
I just priced both of them and came out with $579 (3gig, 6 cell) for the Lenovo and $449 for the HP (3gb mem) without any coupons.
Personally I think the HP appears to be a better value unless you need the business look and the networking features of Win 7 pro.

Why bother? I would just buy it at its worst configurations for hdd and mem. Then I would switch that stuff out and install a fresh copy of Linux. It's not like I'm going to game on it.

I purchased the DM1z because I wasn't able to stretch my budget to get anything better. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Thanks!

Enjoy your HP. How much did you buy it for?

I found this thread because I'm thinking of buying the Lenovo, in particular because of the 10% coupon currently available, which means that it's possible to buy the model with 6 cells and E-350 for $440. Still costs more than the HP, but I care about small and light, and the Lenovo is a bit smaller and lighter than the HP even with the 6 cell battery and certainly with the 3 cell (which should be good enough for my use most of the time). And I like the trackpoint.

Well now the Lenovo does look more appealing with that coupon and 6-cell but 2gig mem. I guess the trick is to start baseline and upgrade cpu for $40. I'm still debating if the form factor at 11.6" is that more functional than my old 9", slow, battery hogging Acer Aspire One. It's useful for bedtime surfing and watching the hour-glass but most office apps are a bit hard to use on that screen.
