My dad asked me to pick him out a good laptop. The only thing he cares about is that it do basic productivity apps and that it not break his back carrying it around. Since I no nothing about the ultra light laptops, I thought I would ask you guys. Any suggestions?

Not sure how light is "light', but I do know he likes my powerbook. I was thinking of something around the size of a 15' powerbook, but for PC. All he needs is basic office apps (Word, Excel) and the ability to check and manage email while on the road, so built in wireless would be nice. He doesn't game or anything else that is more graphic intensive than powerpoint. The only other requirement is cost, he wants something as inexpensive as possible.
