How long will a three cell battery last me if I don't use the wireless?

I have a netbook that has the same kind of keyboard.

Really easy to type on. There might be a netbook with better keyboards, but I have not typed on one.

Decided my signature is obnoxious.
Have two lines instead.

No Windows 7? No problem. With only 1 gig of ram, you want XP

3 cell battery? 3 hours run time? What's the point?

I own a 1005HAB, and must say it's decent for a netbook. Although it's preloaded with Windows XP, it can easily be upgraded to any Windows 7 version even with it's 1 gig of ram.

Battery Life with the 3 cell battery sucks. (2 hours tops.) So if you buy a 6 cell battery it will run a good 4-6 hours of battery life with wifi. Which is not very expensive, you can pick up a $50 one on ebay.

Video playback is meh. It's a little jumpy playing 720p and don't even try 1080p. :P

Gaming? Yeah you can actually play Warcraft 3 and Starcraft on it but new games would obviously not work. But than again, you don't get a netbook to game.

So overall it's great netbook, but don't expect it to be a powerful laptop or anything close really.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

dont cover up your power supply it will overheat and stop working.....if you have already done this then place it in the freezer for 5 min and it will reset thermal protection which is what makes it stop working

I have a friend that has one and it sucks! It takes forever to boot up and be running at 100%. (We're talking 6-7 minutes). Any sites that have flash or heav graphics bog this thing down bad. No external drive, tiny screen, tiny size makes it awkward to type on or set on your lap.

For $70 more if I was on a budget I would go get the cheapest laptop I could find.

webcam, optical drive, decent hard drive etc.

for something that is just meant to surf the net I think they should be closer to the $100 mark.

Most netbooks hardware wise are the same, Intel boards, Intel chips, etc. The big thing to look for when choosing one is if the company backs the product and if you like the style. Asus I think makes one of the better ones with Acer and a few other brands *cough* hp *cough* making similar priced but with poorer support. My personal favorites are the Samsungs because they seem to have bigger keyboards for those of us who have bigger fingers. But overall the insides on these are the same and when selecting one go with which one has the outsides you like and which ones have the best support.

Note the description says up to 3 hours depending on usage. So 3 hours is about the max, assuming no wifi, a dim screen, and nothing too CPU or disk intensive.

yeah, maybe.

But you might really want to consider waiting
till they offer one with a 6 or 9 cell battery,
IMHO.

cheap price, cheap specs. With a 270 processor that has 3 hours of battery. I don't like the deal. You get what you pay for here.

I'm thinking about this for a dedicated USB to DMX lighting controller. Don't need a lot of disk space or CPU power for that, and small/portable is a big plus.

I've been here longer than WootBot.

I am glad to see this offered with OS XP Home... and may I suggest you upgrade the RAM to 2GB... it will improve processor speed...

My sister has one of these and she's very happy with it. In fact, it's her primary computer. In every way, it's an average netbook, not especially fast or slow. The screen is nice and bright, but no better or worse than that of other netbooks. We were, however, quite impressed with the webcam. It performs surprisingly well in dim light. The 3 cell battery pack provides average battery life, which isn't bad if you usually use it plugged into the wall.

Side Note: These seem to be weird that they have only a 3-Cell battery... Most netbooks I have tested have had a 6 or a 9 cell (albeit the 9-Cells seem to be rare).

Also if someone is looking for something with a little more juice try finding a netbook with a AMD Neo, while they are also 1.6Ghz they are much faster (hard to compare Ghz ratings between a AMD and Intel). Atom seem to be shrunken P4s... Not the best chips.

Obviously he changed something or there is something wrong with his netbook. Mine boots up in under 30 seconds with the default OS.

I would have to agree with csimmon1. Seen way to many problems with ACER. I can't recommend one to my worst enemy.

This deal may be good for those who ONLY browse web pages with the occasional video, but in terms of functionality in modern day use I don't think I can recommend it. Video playback will suffer heavily because of a lack of a dedicated graphics card, and this thing should get nice and warm if you run too many programs/processes.

I know all too many people that spent money on netbooks (it can fit in your pocket? And it's as small as a novel?) but alas, they end up despising themselves for getting something that is highly underpowered and minimally functional. These are no-nos for anyone who will be typing a great deal, as the cramped space will be a catalyst for RSI. Plus, the undersized keyboard makes it impossible to type at a moderate speed, so any form of note taking or transcribing is near impossible.

But then, even with it, it has it's uses, but netbooks are a dying breed with more powerful phones that can do nearly the same thing.


And just to note, I wrote this not to troll (even though I believe I unintentionally did) but people who purchase this should be fully informed of what they're getting into.

Nope. And when you install it, you lose all of the XP drives so now none of my Fn keys work and neither does the touch pad lock. And Asus has no Win 7 drivers for it for some reason... Huge pain in the butt...

I have one of the 12 inch ones and it last me about 6 hours, but I don't do gaming, etc. on it. Mine also has a really nice video which has games showing GREAT!!! Only problem is it's not strong enough to run them smoothly... :-(

I hate it when people compare a smart phone to a netbook as they are two totally different systems. Coming form someone who owns both a smart phone and a netbook.

First, a smart phone has a 4'' display or less while a netbook usually has a 10'' display. Second, netbooks are running full operating systems. (Not a mobile or stripped down OS.) And finally netbooks have nearly fully sized keyboards that you can easily type on, not a virtual keyboard.

So YES, a smartphone is more portable than a netbook but they are totally different in several ways.

If you're looking for something to "hackintosh", keep looking.

This one has a bunch of hoops to jump through to install and then the wireless card doesn't work with OS X, so you'd need to get a Dell 1510 card to get wireless networking.

I bought one of these and had some problems that I needed tech support to help me with. The little gamer on the phone was ordering pizza and thought I was on mute. He was so unbelievable that I felt that the Candid Camera crew would jump in at any moment. I called back a few days later and got similar service. I returned the netbook to the Big Bo and got a Mac!

Asus Eee netbooks are the best because of their construction, which is solid. For the money, the deal is nice.

You want faster performance and Win 7 then pay for it. But price vs. performance vs. reliability this Eee will do it you fine.

I got this model and an 8" model with a extended battery that gives me 8 untethered hrs at the local coffee bar.
