your priorities and go from there. It is ALL UP TO YOU
The question that I was asked was referring to the Atom
processor. (not Celeron)
My battery life with the HD is a 4 hours and 15 minutes with
a full charge. I have not timed it, but that is what the screen tells me. I
doubt it really lasts that long - especially with the screen illuminated.
If you are going to encumber your NETbook with memory
sticks and the like, you might as well get the HD. That way if you want to
upgrade to XP pro, you will be able to do it. I don't know if you noticed, but
it also has a slot for the SD memory (it acts as a drive).
It only has one internal slot for memory, so I removed the
1gb and replaced it with 2gb.

I did go over to
best buy today and look at some of the mini net notbook computers today.
Mostly a kick
the tires visit. I left my credit card and check book at
home. There were
eeepc900's (the one without the hard disk but did have windows XP
solid state hard
disk was only 16GB which seems like a lot but with the software load
they give you
there was only about 10gb left. Battery life was only about 3
hours on any
three. A couple of stick drives and you could have more than enough
There was a
nicer HP one that had a better display screen. but it also was about
Asus eeepc900's had celeron processors but the HP had an atom.
Think I will sit
on my hands a bit and save up my money. I would still like
a 6M linear
and some other
stuff and all of it costs more money these days.
