I'm a noob. Looking to buy the asus eee e121, but not looking forward to the awful battery life, and don't want to buy the Energizer external battery just yet either. I love technology but know very little about the guts.

Looking to see if I could update to a more power efficient CPU? I heard that the quad-core Tegra 3 is supposed to help the power consumption. How much work would it take to update the CPU on the asus eee 121 tablet with either the tegra 3 or sandy bridge? I don't know too much about having to change the motherboard/if the native motherboard on the asus is compatible but I'm willing to pay $300-400 for parts and installation. The sandy bridge can be had for $200. Think something like this would be possible?

Just trying to get some advice on ways to improve the battery life on this baby so any advice would help.
