14": help me to choose

Threaded View
My needs:

- 14" as light/small possible
- WXGA (or more) wide screen
- decent audio
- 512MB (or more)
- HDD: 40gig (or more) @ 5400rpm
- Price: about 1000Eur/$

I use only 2D application: word/excel/firefox/cad2d/spice;
no gaming, no 3D so video card shouldn't be a problem
but, of course, a separate video card is always better!

I was looking to DV1000/1200 series: I like it, but it has
an integrated video card and hd at 4200rpm
(here in Italy is avaiable only 4200rpm versions :-(

Then I looked at new Toshiba M50-106: dedicated video
card ATI X600, hd at 4200rpm (but I could replace it)
but it'is overpriced (1200 Eur) and it's a little bigger
than DV1000.

Finally, the Dell 610: seems to fit my needs, but
I don't like its (obsolete) look and it hasn't wide screen.

What do you suggest me to get?

Thanks in advance

I personally like the Dell products but have you looked at ACER or FUJITSU?

Acer is crap IMHO. Fujitsu seems to be good but they have
short battery lifetime.
