Default Need Advice on a Laptop

I need a light & thin laptop. I am on a tight budget, say between $800-$1000 ... anyone recommend any systems?

yea, i've read about Averatecs . Laptop magazine voted it the best thin and portable/affordable notebook of the year. The specs are on the link. It usually runs about 50 more than your max budget, but it should be worth it. 4.2 pounds light, and quality at that
