Hey all,

I currently have a 15 inch HP Pavillion dv6700... Im selling it for $400. Needless to say I dont like it and never did.

Anyway, with the money I get off of the hp I am looking to buy an Ultraportable laptop. One that is preferably an 11.6 incher. My budget is $500.

My needs, are multimedia, music, video, and I will be going to college this auguest, so portability and at least 4-6 hours battery life is wanted, but not needed.

I dont want a netbook. My mother has one, and I hate windows starter. I also would like a little more power as I want the system to last me at least 4 years.

I thinking about buying a ThinkPad X100e. Im not sure though, as I have read alot of reviews with varrying oppinions. I would like input from someone who has the laptop, and oppinions from those who do not. If you have this model, do you like it, is the screen of good quality, what is your overall impression? If you do not, what would you suggest?

Please also note that I hate gloss, period. Which is one reason why Im think of the x100e. Gloss, whether it be on the lid or inside, pisses me off and irritates the crap out of me. No gloss..

Otherwise, I look forward to your suggestions,
thanks,
Neil.
