I am gonna buy a new laptop soon.   I am looking for recommendations please.   I need it to be sturdy, LIGHT WEIGHT, reliable (something that won't break down after one year like my last one!).  

I am not going to do any heavy duty stuff on it, no engine vs engine matches, etc, but I am gonna use it to watch my Fritz trainer downloads, etc, some basic stuff.   I am not looking to buy the world's most expensive laptop, but a few hundred dollars up or down on the price won't make a huge difference.

If there is one that you have had good experience with, please let me know.   Thank you.

If you are looking for something small (13.3") and light weight, an ultrabook is a good choice. Else you should look for a laptop with an Ivy Bridge CPU - they are just being released.

you maybe interested in this Lukas,

35 years ago i worked for Dixserve the sevice division of Dixons with a 1000 shops in UK at the time.
Dixons ordered nearly 1 million radio tape recorders from a japanese company and the deal at the time was,instead of us asking for spares you give us extra 2% free.This was normal at the time.Well we are sat in our service division working away when we are told we had a delivery,a great container wagon outside had 20,000  RTR's for us,We had to store outside but oppened containers for paperwork.Inside one container there was paperwork for Dixons whole order,they had put it all in extra 2% shipment.
I discovered their buying price was £5 per unit and the selling price was £50.Talk about mark up.

This was the way Alan Sugar made his money with Amstrad,what a load of junk that was,To me that guy was near enough a crook,the public used to bring his junk in for repair and as head of service division in Bristol i had to explain to them that it was not repairable.All they had bought was something that looked pretty but dont turn volume up to much.
