I wouldn't mind so much spending the money, but not for such a small screen. Does lightweight have to equal extremely small screen? My Dell has a 15 inch screen and weighs 7 pounds. A 15 inch screen is fine, but I think if I go too much smaller it will feel like I am on my Ipad. And that 7 pounds has gotten too heavy for me: I want something lightweight.
I got the Asus UX32VD last summer. I agree that the 13.3" 1080P IPS display is gorgeous. My previous laptop had a disappointing TN panel.vandy wrote:I got a Asus UX32VD a month ago. Absolutely love it! What sold me on it was the 1080p IPS screen. I upgraded the ram to 10gb and swap the HDD with SSD.

Heck, you could even get a new one from the regular lenovo site for a good price with an awesome keyboard, a good 1600x900 IPS screen, Intel Wi-fi, and lenovo durability.
edit: This search includes T420,420s,520,520s,430,430s, but all the same stuff above applies. Find the specs you want out of this and pull the trigger.
