Thanks! I've never heard of ASUS before. I looked around for other products by them and found essentially the same set-up but with longer battery life and its about $100 cheaper.http://ca.asus.com/p...AH8HAdGuhiQIXgg
If the battery life is said to be 11 hours, I assume that to be with it just being on and not actually using it. What would be a good estimate as to what it would actually be?
Also, it seems to me that there isn't a CD-drive. While not really an issue, how complex would it be to get an external one for at home use?
And lastly, that particular computer comes equipped with XP. Upon reading around more after my first post and seeing many pre-loaded with Windows 7 Starter I seem to understand that it isn't that great of an OS. I don't seem to get what the problem with it is, but how complex or necessary would it be to install Linux instead?
Sorry, I know that's a lot I'm just a little confused. Thanks!
