I thought your first post said 1800-1900? Is the budget around 1000 now?
If you can deal with the higher price, you might check out Lenovo Thinkpads(X series is pretty small and light, 12" screen, great build quality)
I got an X61 recently, and I love it. With the 8-cell battery, I seem to consistently get around 6 hours of life doing web browsing, music, etc.
Hope that helps, although if you are looking for something less than 1K, Thinkpads aren't really the best solution
Edit: with the extended battery and such, I'm not sure a Thinkpad would technically be an ultraportable...IDK. Just a suggestion.Edited by madcat66 - 6/17/08 at 10:48pm
