I am a college student at the moment and my entire campus is wireless. It seems everyone and thier mother has a laptop here, and some classes are just so boring. I am looking for something cheap (and preferbly small) with either wireless or a pmcia slot and a p3. Thanks.

my recommendation: A Del Inspiron 600m laptop. You can get it with a pentium-M 1.3Ghz processor. It comes with internal wireless, is relatively small, and it has a hot swappable media bay so you can have a cdrom in it. Most of the really small laptops don't have room for a cdrom.

But the great thing about this laptop is it's battery life. You can toss in a second battery in the media bay and get yourself about 7 hours of battery life --more than enough to last you several boring classes.

When buying a dell laptop, the trick is to wait for the big coupons/stackable coupons. You can get several hundred dollars off the price if you buy at the right time.
