Since the Fujitsu at 4 lbs was included in this category for comparison, here's a configuration for the just-under 4 lb.
Dell XPS M1330:3GB

T7500 vs. Air LV Merom Whatever 1.8GHz$1404 (with SSD: $2154)
So... 1.5x the price for these feeble-in-comparison components buys over a lb. lighter, slimmer, superduper trackpad, camera w/ more MP... and [drumroll] tapered for illusion of even more slimness. Whoopi.
And Leopard (+ iLife). Whew. OK. Not a RDF ripoff.

What does that mean?
