the performance.......not quite what I would like
Should note that any laptop, overtime, will develop overheating problems if thy're not cleaned out regularly. Dust builds up in the heat sink, blocking airflow from the fan to it. Canned air isn't some kind of gimmick. It really is useful for cleaning that dust out.
Maybe a lot of your performance problems are just that it just needs a tune up or a SSD. I looked it up, and hardware side, your Portegé shouldn't be running into any performance issues for what you're doing. It has plenty of power.
To answer the rest form what I understand-
I would like to find a laptop with slightly higher resolution........if possible.
The higher resolution isn't going to happen at the sub 15 inch screen size that you're looking for. It does exist, but only in very expensive netbooks outside your budget. So, Not possible.
I would like to find a laptop with........ lower weight, if possible.
Portegé specs: weight: 3.2 lbs
I'm taken a bit of a assumption here, but are you caring it in a purse or in something small along the lines of that, that isn't really meant to hold more then a phone or small tablet? I can get size is an issues, and I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm really curious just how weight, lower then 3.2 pounds, plays into the equation. I see College students, who are the epitome of people who need supper portable laptops, regularly carry around 15.6 inch 6 pound laptops with zero issue or complaint.
Usually I only even see weight that low tossed around as a marketing term that has nothing to do with actual real world use. Like apple saying they shaved off another gram from the newest iPhone. I have no idea how 1 gram is going to do anything at all, but some how that's a good enough reason for everyone to rush out and buy it.
Maybe you could inform me? I am really curious as to why. As well as I think a whole ton of other people are to.
I apologize for the rant. Despite having windows 8. This is the closest thing I could find.
HP Pavilion 13-p111nr
Uses a SSD for supper fast and snappy use. Weighs 2.36 pounds. Has a 13.3 inch screen size- not to small that its unreadable like the Acer, but not to big that it's unusable for what it is that you're doing. Oh um, but it uses that weird touch pad where the buttons are integrated into the touch pad :/
I do a lot of typing. I do not want a touch screen or Windows 10. (Would like Windows 7.)
Windows 7 isn't something you can find on laptops that lighter then what you have. The whole "supper light and small" thing for laptops didn't really hit until after Windows 8 had launched.
I would like to replace my Toshiba Portegé R835-P81 because the performance and resolution are not quite what I would like, and it has developed some overheating.
