My oldest son will be heading off to college in August (*sniff*) and he needs a laptop (or equivalent) for school. Something to carry around campus in his backpack, write papers on ... the usual stuff.

What specs should I be looking for? What's a good, affordable machine that doesn't weigh too much and won't cost me $1,000+ (so no Macbooks, please).
We're looking at similar machines, so not a problem.
