The ASUS K42F is a 14" 1366x768 notebook with an Intel Core i5 540M powering it and comes with some nice features, like a Blu-Ray drive. Legit Reviews contrasts it with an HP Pavilion DV4-1555dx
which is powered by a C2D P8700. Between the HyperThreading, Turbo Mode and the on die Intel HD graphics, they saw a 40-50% performance increase from the older HP system. Also worth noting is the battery life; you might expect the older and slower machine to come out on top but again it is left behind the new Arrandale machine.

There is something a little unusual about Lenovo's new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom. Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6" 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB. The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.
