Rather than trying to get the mythical perfect compromise - a powerful yet portable laptop – I went for the other option, and complemented my very-powerful-but-absolutely-not-portable laptop (I had to search hard to find a laptop bag where it would fit…) with a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 (2.3 pounds, 232mm width, 32GB solid-state hard drive). Too early to tell how much I like it yet, but the contrast between the two is striking. Next step: putting Windows 7 on.

On the Windows 7 installation part - this was a breeze, except for one small issue: it took me quite a while to realize that in order to boot from a removable CD drive, you have to plug it into the right USB port - not every port will do... It was all worth it, though, and it's running beautifully!
