Which laptop and for how much?

  keedo 00:00 04 Jan 2007

Basically i am after a small lightweight laptop, to use on the train, mostly for work but i may relax and watch the occasional DVD.

I would prefer a small screen, 10.6" ideally, but perhaps a little bigger. I would also want an internal DVD drive...i cant abide plug-ins and they are not really practical space wise on the train IMO.

I am happy to track down something older. I do not really have a budget but as it will not be used for games, graphically it does not have to be great and i do not think it worth the additional cost.

So in summary:

Screen 10.6" ideally or a little larger
Internal DVD drive

Cheers in advance for any help

Consider the option of ripping DVDs to the hard drive or even converting to AVI files (700mb or so per film) and then the DVD drive only need be used at home or work in the background to prepare what you might watch in the future.
