I've waited for the Brazos APU's to come out, and while I'm still a little disappointed with their performance, I really want a replacement for my old (and not fully functioning) Fujitsu P1510D, and the AMD APU's look like the best bang for the buck in the ultraportable arena.
I'll be able to get a new laptop from the US in about 2 months time. I almost got an Acer AO522 from Canada last month, but unfortunately the store didn't accept my foreign credit card. I do have a 4GB sodimm I bought for it (since that store did accept my card).
Anyway, the current choices I'm entertaining are the Acer 522 and the Lenovo X120e. The Acer costs $330 at Amazon.com, the Lenovo $440 at the Lenovo store (after coupon) with an E-350 and 6 cell battery.
Advantages of the Acer: smaller, weighs less, less costly.
Advantages of the Lenovo: faster APU, slightly higher res display (and non-glossy), trackpoint (I like these better than touchpads), easier to upgrade, more RAM (6GB vs. 4GB with the 4GB stick I have).
What would you suggest? Both will be a step down from the P1510D in terms of size/weight and functionality, but I don't think there's anything really good that's smaller.
Feel free to suggest alternatives (including those coming out in the near future). Size and weight are the important criteria. For example, the HP dm1z is larger and heavier than the Lenovo, so it's a worse choice for me.
BTW, only reason I'm itching to buy now is the Lenovo coupon. After all, the laptop will languish in the US for a couple of months until it's brought here. And I'll probably feel really sorry if Llano based laptops of this form factor appear over the next 2 months.
