Hi guys,

I need another laptop, as light and small as possible for not more then $1000 ish.

I don't care about the processor as it will be used mainly for email and web.


Does anyone have any recommendations?

Cheers,

Is that the one with the 4gig flash drive?

I am required to have some local MySQL databases installed for an extremly low end test environment all web based so nothing to taxing!

Just a normal laptop

Yes, these are the ones with the 4GB memory. But you can always add an external drive - I have a 160 GB Seagate that does not require external power, only two USB ports for example...
