Oh, you plan to play on-the-go? Hmm, I've never really tried that because in my experience, it's not really possible to play on a trackpad... nonetheless, let me know how it goes.

As for batteries, you'll find that if you avoid the manufacturer and go for third-party batteries, they are usually a lot cheaper, more so if you dare to import them from places like Hong Kong.

BTW, you bought a netbook already?

Hmmm, I dont actually own a netbook but try and get one with a AMD fusion chip or Nvidia ion (if they still make them o.o)

But i do suggest you take a look at www.gog.com most games there should have no problem on a netbook

I think he meant expansions such as Opposing Force and Blue Shift. As for HL2... you could play it on your netbook, but you'll need to do some serious tweaks.
