Of course you can buy ultra light laptops but... they are extremely expensive.

I'm having a hard time deciding about the screen size. I think I want a bigger screen, but I read one review that mentioned how that laptop's weight (8.x lbs) wasn't something that a person would really carry around a lot. The whole purpose of my purchase is the portability factor. We are traveling quite a bit to soccer tournaments, and I've got to be able to get online and work on school stuff. But I really want the bigger screen.


I'm only 5'3" and about 110 lbs. But I'm strong.

What to do...
