    14 hours with interwebz, and email, and spreadsheets, and some documents, I wonder if it could be true *crosses fingers*

    I'd like to see more SSD netbooks for increased speed and durability. But you know... cheaper.

    I'm liking the battery life. Performance wise it might be equal with the older atom platform...

    I'm sure they've made vast strides in battery life, but I find 14 hours to be hard to believe in any realistic situation. Has anyone had a chance to look at these in person yet? Is it getting anywhere near what they claim? Any independent test reports yet? I can get my wife's Dell Mini 10 up to 6 hours without major tweaking, with a little more effort and giving up some features I can stretch it to 7 or even 8. But wow, if they've made this really work for 14 hours while still being usable, that's amazing.

    For this money; configuration and performance of this netbook is amazing. 14 is more than enough. Can't wait to see full review of this netbook, like performance and closer look at parts.

    14 hours is really good for a regular user, business user etc, but with that Intel GPU it's a GIANT NO for me. Price is great. Make an Ion model or something similar and you'll see more hardcore users interested.
