The funny thing about this laptop is that is full featured. The Atom notebooks were all slim pickings compared to this. Is it because they believe the CPU is capable of that much more than the Atom OR because the Atom gave you limitations?


Fusion is capable of more than 6 hours of battery life. It is the battery that is weak. It is rated as 3600mah= 3 cell. SONY is cheating us with a weak battery since they figure Fusion is so efficient. This is a deal breaker since HP fusion model offer 4400mah = 6 cell (8 hours).
