Thinnest laptop

In this day and age of light and thin (iPod nano, Motorola Razr) I'm looking for a thin laptop.

Screen should be a 'decent' size. I've seen some Sony Vaio's and they are not really useable -- in terms of screen size and keyboard.

Any recommendations? I'm biased toward Dell's.

The Panasonic's Lets Note, which is a big hit in Japan.I am not sure where you can get them in US but they are very good and very thin

Hmm... should have added that this is for home use, so I'm kinda on a budget. Let's try for something around $1500?

Toshiba Portege. The S100 is $1400. 14" screen, full size laptpop keyboard, long battery life. I have an earlier version and love it. It has no optical drive, as is common with the thinest and lightest.

A buddy of mine picked up the Asus W5(?) and it's pretty slim ... but it's more for the mobile road warrior. Think it's only a 12.1 inch screen ... but a very, very nice package in any case.

As for Dell ... you probably can't beat their price especially considering their promos and coupons that float around at times. If I could take advantage of them i'd probably seriously consider their laptops.
