Here is what you do, call gateway 2000, and you can create the exact computer you want, and for much cheaper, also look for compaw laptops.

The laptop I purchase must be ultra light weight and ultra thin.

CDW used to have the ThinkPad 560 at around $1800
but no more.  That is why I am hunting now.

Thank you.  Although I found that Computer Market Place was out of these, I did find what I was looking for at Insight.  Your answer prompted me to re-check the vendors I had previously researched.  I found a ThinkPad 560 Pentium 133 for $1979 at Insight.
