    Looking for Good Small Laptop

    I'm looking for a small laptop (prefferably below 15")

    I want it to be like a netbook for portability but i want a laptop which has a dedicated graphics card, because i will be using some relatively graphic intensive programs, and for it to have a relatively decent RAM.

    Does anybody have any recommendations?

    what graphics intensive programs are we talking? my netbook will run photo editing and 3d cad software and thats on a ghetto intel atom, its obviously not as fast as a desktop as youd imagine but it does the job. i think if you want a dedicated graphics card on a netbook youll be hard pushed to find 1 at that price

    I can get it to run some of my graphic intensive programs (suprisingly), i use programs such as 3D rendering software, After Effects, photoshop.

    The programs i'm talking about are programs such as Visual3D.net, some games (not necessary but its nice to know i could in moments of boredom), etc.

    The price is specified is not set, its just to give a rough idea, i will be using it for uni probably in a computer course.


    And thanks for the recommendation on the Laptop from play

    Typing this on a Acer ASPIRE One I love this little computer.
    I loaded mine with Ubuntu Netbook Remix and XP and it runs pretty fast.
    Cons : No CD-Rom No graphics card
    Pros : HDD is 160g i believe and 2g of ram. Beautiful screen. Webcam. Wireless. Good battery life. ultra portable light weight.
    It's perfect for just surfing the net on the couch.
    EDIT
    And it's CHEAP 250$

    tbh if you really want to run games and high end graphical software your better off getting a 15" laptop as for 500 youll get something easily within the specs required. if your going small you need to sacrifice performance for an increased price so id ask yourself do you want a 15" wit decent specs or a smaller laptop with lower specs.

    i purchased this for use with uni about a month ago - http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.206-6187.aspx

    comes with 11.6" screen, full size keyboard, 2gb ram, 250gb hdd and atom processor. use it for editing my dslr photos, running uni software such as matlab and ic engine simulation software along with the usual word processing. have written a couple of 5000 word assignments on it so far and its fabulous in that respect. also have rollercoaster tycoon 3 installed for when im bored and runs spot on but it definetly wouldnt like anything more graphic intensive than that.

    im over the moon with the netbook, but like i said youll have to decide exactly what you want from a netbook/laptop

    I recently picked up a Dell Studio.. It's got a 14" 16:9 screen, GeForce 9400M, Core 2 Duo, 5GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive, upgraded battery and screen. Extremely light and portable. May be worth looking into =)

    I wouldn't recommend going with an Intel Atom if you're going to be running graphics programs.

    I'd go with this: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/169125

    I've been checking it out for the last 24 hours now and I'm really tempted to get it especially for that price(380). Don't bother if you don't dig AMD and low-resolution.

    AMD QL-65 CPU (A64X2 2.1GHz)
    3GB DDR2 800MHz
    250GB HDD
    15.6" HD TFT Colur Shine
    Resolution: 1366 x 768
    ATI Radeon HD4570

    I do think it's very cheap for having a RADEON 4570. For that price, the best videocard you can get in most notebook is a RADEON 3200.
