The longer I look at that vast array of notebooks from Toshiba, Sony, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus and Acer the harder I find to select one. Right balance between computing power, portability, battery longevity, quality of display is very difficult to get. Some of the notebooks excel in multimedia but when you read their specifications they hardly last longer than an hour on batteries. The once with long life battery on another hand struggle to perform even the most basic tasks with any sense of performance. It is truly a vicious circle. I will not mention value for money. It is going to be a long search.
