I need a new laptop or netbook or whatever they call it these days. I have been struggling with a Sony Vaio Y series for some time but because of the Windows licencing where they sell Windows dirt cheap as long as it only has 2Gb Ram it struggles to handle tasks. So I need something new. I prefer a light device but with a decent amount of memory so that we dont get bogged down with moderate size spreadsheets.
Any suggestions from the world of Geeks as to what I should buy and why?
Thanks

I don't mind cost under 2k $ sounds reasonable.
