Hello, I am having difficulty finding the right netbook for me. Here is what I am looking for in order of priority:
Battery life 4+ hours.
Portability - about 3 lbs or preferably less, small/thin is optimal
As high resolution as possible, probably with a 10 or 11 inch screen
SSD of at least 8GB for O/S installation, plus secondary SSD or HDD for data
Glare resistance - I can't stand glossy screens that reflect light, I want to be able to see clearly in bright sunlight if possible - a bright LCD/LED that can do that would be best
Looks - I like the seashell style of ASUS, or the brushed aluminum look of HP - thin is best
2+ GB of memory capacity (it can start with 1GB, as long as I can upgrade it)
USB ports - 3+ would be ideal
Right now, price isn't as important. I will spend a good amount on the right netbook for me.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? There are so many choices out there, it is hard to find the right one.
I bought a Toshiba Satellite T135-S1309 and sold my netbook.
The Toshiba was about US$200.00 more but it has a real processor in it along with being a dual core. It's lighter, has a 9hr20min est battery life, plays HD content smoothly, a much better screen, more HDD/RAM, and a better OS: WIN 7 HP instead of starter. Money well invested, I'm much happier now.
