Core i3 330 details: ark.intel.com/Pro…663

Available at both Amazon and eBuyer for same price, I guess one is price matching the other:

Cheaper than Comet (£450) and many other places.

Better than the PCWorld/Currys one... heat added

So a 4hr battery translates to about 2hrs....

I have a 9hr battery on netbook but at the very most on internet and watching videos you get 5-6hrs, to get the full 9hrs I'd probably have to turn off backlight and do word processing.

Pretty good value I think. But without HT and tubro boost, spend a bit more on i5 laptop might work out better.

Battery time quote was from the review - they managed to get just over 4 hours use out of it browsing the internet. So it's a real time benchmark not usual made up quote

The Core i3 330 includes hyperthreading: ark.intel.com/Pro…663 (I didn't think the Core i3's did either.... but Intel says otherwise!). It does miss out on turbo boost though.
