This netbook has great battery life at 9hours but - most importantly - it has a really great keyboard - perfect for touch typing. Only the Samsungs (and one or two others) come close on battery life, but their keyboards are not comfortable for touch typing (too small, keys badly placed). My sister in law used her Toshiba for 12 years (I'm not kidding), so these things are very well made.
This is the one I want! Go try the keyboard! I'm watching the price on these and Comet have reduced it by £10 today!
