What is better for general computing and YouTube videos? Gaming is not really a concern for me. I'm traveling abroad to study, so battery life/general performance is most important, although I would like to be able to watch HD videos.
Option 1: Asus eee PC with Intel Atom dual core N570 1.66Ghz and Nvidia ION 2 GPU. 1GB DDR3 RAM (Probably will upgrade to 2GB)
Option 2: MSI Wind 12" with Intel dual core SU4100 1.3Ghz and GMA 4500 MHD. (Will install either 2GB or 4GB ddr2 RAM.)
I want whichever is faster. Another concern is that option 1 supports a maximum of 2GB DDR3 RAM, whereas option 2 supports a maximum of 4GB DDR2 RAM.
