    In looking myself at laptops, and into tablet PCs, theyt end to be fairly expensive. The least expensive ones I saw were Gateways, I'd check them out.

    If you would really like a Tablet PC, perhaps you would like to check out our sister site TabletPCReview. I think the problem you are going to run into, there is an inverse relationship between the weight and its graphics prowess. Meaning the lighter it is, the less likely it will be able to play games well. Good Luck.

    Tablet usually has lame graphic card compare to regular laptop. From what you said, i believe the Asus w3j would fit you best. Light, Fast, really nice graphic card, a head turner, and it just got refresh! ^_^

    Check it out on Asus Forum. ETA is second week of April i believe

    Price should be around $1799

    I would fill out the FAQ. What your looking for isn't very clear.

    Unless you have a specific need, I think you are better off with a regular notebook. With the aforementioned Asus being a good option for something light with some gaming chops. The Sony SZ is worth a look, but may be beyond your budget.

    yeah the sony is above my price rate.... I just need a really good SCHOOL laptop so I can take notes on it. Are the alienwares good? Is the Gateway Tablet fast? How about apple? I just need someone to say like wut i should buy..

    It needs to be lightweight, have good graphics so i could play games on it and have some cool features.... Is the IBM thinkpad X41 good? Wut is the deal with the thumbprint thing?
