I'm looking to buy a Netbook for hiking and biking around.

My basic criteria, roughly in order of decreasing priority:

  • Longest Battery Life Possible*
  • Metal Exterior
  • High Durability
  • $300-$500
  • 90/95% keyboard (9" to 10"?)
  • Arch Linux

    If I have this, I can keep it in a large pant pocket or small bag for when inspiration strikes me or I want to watch porn. Or both.

    *I want real battery life. Will replace original battery with 2 9 cell batteries rigged in parallel.

    90% of all netbooks out are identical and there's not much variation, though ASUS are leading the pack in terms of battery life and longevity. Check them out.
