Conclusion: An attractive, super-light and capable notebook that's tough enough to take a licking; a rare and lovely combination. The W4 is absurdly light yet it fits in a 12.1" display and optical drive along with a reasonable set of ports and card slots. If you need a semi-rugged notebook but thought you had to haul around a behemoth, do consider the W4. It has more than enough processing power for business tasks, a strong dose of good looks and won't weigh you down on the road.
Pros: Rugged yet attractive. Bright display, good performance for a machine in this class, great battery life, integrated WiFi and optical drive.
Cons: Keyboard may be a bit cramped for big-fingered folk. Standard hard drive is only 40 gigs: small for a notebook that costs over $2,000.
