    not seen one with 20gb hd?

    usually they're 512 ram 8gb ssd or 1gb ram and 120gb hdd?

    we bought the smaller of the two and installed tinyxp on it and it's brilliant. so light and the screen is excellent. perfect for lazy browsing of an evening when having the pc or laptop on is overkill.

    How long does your battery last?

    Mine gets 2 hours plus no problem. If I were to switch the wi-fi off and switch battery to powersave mode, the battery would probably last 2.5 hours.plus

    Is it known for the battery to go? As seen people buying replacement ones!!

    Whats the going rate for the 120GB and 512 RAM?

    I got one from Asda for £150 and brought another from pcworld a couple of days ago for £130 (I think dixons have refurbs at this price too). It's definitley my favourite lappy, can more or less take it everywhere as its so small & light.

    Thanks, will take a look!!

    I think people are buying replacement batteries that can last between 6-9 hours, depending on what type of battery they choose. If you want to use this on a long haul flight or without connecting it to a power supply for a similar period of time, a battery with 6-9 hours is preferable to one with 2-2.5 hours. I'm satisfied with the battery time I get.
