  • 6/9 Cell pack(You wont get 14hrs, be aware of that, even if the label says so; More like 6hrs).
  • 1,6ghz Dual or 2ghz single Minimum.
  • A keyboard that isnt tiny.
  • SD Card reader.
  • SSD is a big plus, but should be last on the list.
  • 1GB Ram is ok, but really should be looking at 2GB. Any more is a waste.
  • Windows 7 Starter is not Windows 7, be aware, google for more;
  • Linux can be a great option for netbooks
  • No matter what GFX will suck, as long as you can playback 1080 you're fine
  • Wireless N would be nice
  • They all have webcams, not a selling point.
  • 250GB HDD is more than enough.
