With so many mixed reviews/models out there I'm actually stuck on what to buy. What I'm after Netbook with a 10" to 13" screen 2GB RAM or Higher Virtualization support 8hrs battery life 250GB HD or bigger The rest I'm not fussed about for example which OS it comes with. Is there actually a product on the market that can provide me with all that? Have you any recommendations/what to steer clear of? Regards, Steve More about : win netbook 8hrs battery life virtualization blashyrkh April 15, 2010 11:13:14 AM 8Hrs of battery life?? no way. To have virtualization you need i7 which doesn't come out in 10-13" netbooks. What are you going to use the laptop for? stevetilsed April 15, 2010 2:59:54 PM Hi, Many thanks for the reply. I hope to be using the laptop for RDP'ing around and running quite a few virtual machines (not all at the same time) With regards to the 8hrs battery life, i have seen a few brands quoting that? Am i wrong? I understand 8hours is with little or no use just the netbook turned on. Regards, Steve Can't find your answer ? Ask !
