Mate, I hear Dell has one with a 9 hour battery life. I just bought an Asus. Its 5 months old and has been with the manufacturer 2 months with a fried motherboard. They cant fix it and wont give me a refund and/or replacement. I am going legal with them. Good luck buddy.
Thanks I actually posted this again over last night figuring I posted it in the wrong place to begin with.
As far as Dell go's I think I will stay away from them all together. Not really a fan of them for many reasons. I have been looking at the Asus or Acer whichever it is EEPC ones and the MSI Wind models but I cannot seem to find the MSI wind u115 model which is supposed to last up to 25 Hours. I would love to find something around the 12 hour mark that does not require adjusting the Netbook to get it. I can see adjusting hte brightness for extra battery length a bit but to have to turn it all the way down would not work seeing how I would be using it for watching movies or web browsing during flight travel.
