Alternatives to Toshiba Portege S100 ?

I'm looking at buying a laptop. The one that I've come across that most closely fits the bill is a Toshiba Portege S100.

Does anyone have suggestions for alternatives, especially at similar or less cost?

Main criteria are:

14" non-wide screen.

Light weight (the S100 is claimed to be 1.9Kg)

Ideally with Pentium M or AMD equivalent, plus all the usual (802.11a/g, 512+M, etc.)

click here is this the one?

If that's it, I'd say go for it. I've been looking at compact portables for a neighbour who's asked for my advice and that model was one that made the shortlist. It's very good value, especially for a Tosh; they're normally a bit more pricey than that.

Ended up going for a Samsung X06 at £750, with 3 yr warranty from ebuyer. It's sub 2kg and v. slim.

The Fujitsu one might have been of interest, but was old stock and when I tried to get two days after the original posting eberywhere that had had them had sold out.
