Netbook / Ultrabook Recommendations?
March 27, 2012 7:47 AM Subscribe
I'd like to replace my 2 or 3 year-old Acer 12-inch netbook with something that has more horsepower. But I still want something that's small and light
with at least 6 hours
of battery life. I also want a netbook or laptop that's sturdy and doesn't get hot
or have a loud fan. It looks like the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook meets my needs and it gets very good reviews. Although I'm nervous about it having only a 3-cell battery. I also like the specs for Lenovo's $750 Thinkpad Edge e220s but there are no customer reviews for it on Newegg or Amazon. I'd like your input and to know if I've overlooked any other good choices. I'd rather spend $500 than $800, but I might be willing to pay even more for a truly great machine.

I don't play games, I usually use a wireless mouse and I don't need a DVD/CD-ROM drive. I tend to have lots of files open and I primarily do writing, web design, web surfing and some light graphics/CAD work. BTW, I won't even consider a Dell or Fujitsu.
