Compaq's thin and lightweight (1.29" and 5.3lbs.) v2000 Presario notebook line is now starting at just $549.99 after $150 in rebates ($100 instant rebate and $50 mail-in rebate). A 1.8ghz AMD processor, 14" display and 40gb hard drive are standard. Wireless networking is built-in. Norton Internet Security, along with 60 days of updates, is pre-installed. I'd consider upgrading to 512mb memory and the CDRW / DVD drive, each $50. Shipping is free.
