since my gf has a penchant for using the bed as a workdesk, I crushed her laptop a while ago and ruined the lcd when it was hiding under the covers. now she needs a new laptop (or has, for a month and a half now) and since I haven't been up to date on my computer knowledge, I'm a bit at a loss.
CNET and notebookreviews don't really help all that much since we are just looking for something lightweight, portable and relatively fast for under $500.
The two I was looking at were the HP DM1Z and the Lenovo X120e E350. We don't like stupid shiny bezels or anything. just business-class functionality.
Any other recommendations?
