Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

What would you call it, then? There are plenty of books out there that weigh 3lbs, and some that last 6 hours on a single charge (or even 10 hours with a 2 battery design). So, this being near the top of the spectrum, and also having limited portability due to battery life, what the heck is it if not a desktop replacement?

In my mind:
ultraportable= 4lbs and less
thin and light= 4-5.5lbs
desktop replacement= 5.5-8lbs
greater than 8lbs, I think, is a marketing mistake, as you'll almost certainly be better off with an SFF.

Or do you just get a kick out of being contrarian?
