Portable Netbook under $350 with very long battery life

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need something under $350 with long battery life that I can take to school and use for watching Youtube videos and working on homework (Powerpoint and Excel mainly).

I won't be gaming or anything on it, but I wouldn't mind something with HDMI out that can play 1080p videos, but this isn't required.

Anything you guys recommend?

Well but what I got is cheaper so I thought the cheaper the better with long battery life.

But yes mine is a single core but it has two HT so it acts like a dual core. This netbook is DDR3 which is nice and has 800mhz system bus.

Tru dat. The Fusion CPU w/ the ATI integrated card pwns Intel. My Acer also has a 1366x768 display and Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, not starter.
