    Have you considered getting an ultraportable with an SSD? Pricey, but at least you can get 5-6 hours of battery life.

    Looks like you can get a ThinkPad X301 with up to a 128 GB SSD and with up to 9-cells worth of battery.

    Unfortunately, that will also run you $2,600. Be nice to have a netbook that offers the same for $600; no need to pay for the extra CPU.

    @Chris – I think that, like other penniless bloggers, Zoli was hoping someone would give him a netbook to trial. I’m squarely in the same campe – although an ultra portable would be nice

    Vendors? 😉

    @Ben, nice try 🙂

    @Chris, I am not a road worrier, and for a the few trips / conferences $4-500 range seems OK, but not thousands.

    For now the Dell Mini 12 comes closest, Samsung will soon have the NC20, and I bet by summer we’ll have several SSD-based models with a decent screen resolution, either in the 12″ or 10″ category.
