Default Looking for the right mini laptop - 05-06-2009, 10:23 PM

Hey there.. im looking to get a min laptop for taking on bike tours and using at home. Im not sure which one to get. I am willing to go with any brand, and my list of specs I want, in order of importantness to me is:

longest possible battery life
ability to run OSX
large hard drive (neednt be ssd, though does that affect battery life?)
SD card slot
compact/lightweight

I don't think any of the Dells meet your need. The only one that runs OS X is the 9 and it is SSD-only. If 64GB is enough, you can get that, plus up to 32GB in a SDHC card, that would do, but it costs more. Battery life is good on the 9 but not exceptional. The 9 is the most compact and lightweight of the Dells.
