Since my 4 kg. laptop doesn't make travelling every month any easier and bringing the com to my university is a no-go, I figured I had to have one of those ultra small laptops, a notebook. But finding one isn't all that easy, when you know almost zero about computers. Luckily my boyfriend is a bit of a geek with computers and electronics. He made me a checklist of all the things I should check when shopping for a notebook (below). I bought a LG X110 in baby pink with a white keynoard. The size of the screen is 10" and the weight is only 1.19 kg.

Things to look for when buying a notebook:

  • Min. 1024 (1GB) RAMOpstilling med punkttegn
  • Operating system: Windows XP- NOT Vista since it's too heavy a system for a notebook
  • Harddisk: 20 GB if you only wanna use it for docs. 160+ GB for docs, music etc.
  • Slots/battery: the more slots it has, the better
  • An intern memory card reader. If it doesn't have, you can buy an extern.
  • Speakers
  • Intern wifi
  • USB "holes"
  • Warranty. By law, you have two years in Denmark. Some places might try to cheat you and sell you the two years. So check the rules of your country
  • Windows Office, always great to have
  • The weight
  • Webcam. A webcam takes up space on your com. Make sure wether you need it or not.
  • Bluetooth, if needed
  • Computerbag. Most of them aren't included

Well known notebooks: HP Pavillion, HP Compaq, Acer Aspire, Dell Latitude.
