13 inch notebook

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I searching for a 13inch notebook

and i have found serveral options available here in portugal

Main use will be
browsing
instantMessaging(webcam)
light work excel word and some php/mysql
and able to play HD content, via HDMI.
and good battery life.

im temped by this asus UL30JT-RX059
http://www.wsi-bg.com/index.php?page...mart&Itemid=43

but im afraid the CPU will be just too weak

other option is U30JC-QX191V
a bit over my budget but willing to put in the extra cash if it really is worth it.
http://www.wsi-bg.com/index.php?page...mart&Itemid=43

and an other option is this
Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 NV13CPG
http://www.prinfor.com.pt/publico/po...--nv13cpg.html
but specifications are not clear and i cant find any real info about it except what is on the page. (ive emaild the store for a full spec list)


My main concern is that the i3 UM CPU's are to weak.
my GF has a toshiba T100 with a Intel U4100 and that thing is just to slow.

I'd recommend the thinkpad x220 with the premium HD screen (IPS panel much better quality than the standard TN panels in almost every other laptop)
has a pretty good battery life, around 15 hours though can go above 20+ hours with a battery upgrade.
and currently there is a deal for 4GB of ram upgrade for free over the standard 2GB.

You should check an Acer TimelineX. It seems like it fits your needs perfectly, and it's a very reasonable price.

I'd recommend x220 as well. X220i (i3 and no IPS) with student discount is actually pretty cheap, I bought mine for 690 euro. (lapstars.de)
7h battery life, great build and durability, light, runs cool&silent, pretty much no issues at all and it is a _great_ notebook.
