Hi everyone;

I'm nearing the end of my college career and I'm shopping for a new laptop. However, I have alot of specification's for what I'm looking for and I hope I can find something with what I have in mind. Hope I'm not too picky!

I'm first of all looking for a laptop that is small, light, compact, and durable as well as one that packs alot of disk space on it. I.e something that is very easy to carry around(not bulky) and doesn't weigh alot. Also, I want something that is good for both doing work and playing games on. Furthermore, I would like a machine that has a VERY LONG battery life. I would also like a laptop with 3G or anywhere wireless capability so I can use it on the go.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations I get.

If you want small, light, compact, long battery then a ultrabook fits that description, something like this but the disadvantage to ultrabooks is they don't use discrete graphics which is important for gaming and they use SSDs which isn't to big. This one would fit all your needs but a bit heavier.

I have a VPCSA41FX Sony VAIO laptop (very similar to the VPCSA43FX that killerx525 linked) and I absolutely love everything about it with the exception of one thing: It has a relatively short battery life. At full charge, my VAIO laptop lasts somewhere between 2~4 hours depending on whether I have it set to "Stamina" or "Speed" (you can manually switch between integrated and discrete GPUs with a small switch above the keyboard).

The OP requested a "very long" battery life, so this might be a small issue depending on how crucial battery life is. Everything else about the VPCSA series is great though. :)

Interesting will check both of what you guys reced out.

Does anyone know much about the MacBook Air? If so how is it? I've read that's it's gotten good reviews.

Thanks again!

Only drawback for this one, is no discrete graphics, but 1.3 gb of shared video memory: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+14%22+Laptop+-+8GB+Memory+-+750GB+Hard+Drive+-+Aluminum+Platinum/4566459.p?id=1218492325284&skuId=4566459
