Will this work? I need something to type notes on in class. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Personally what I would be looking for is high battery life, slimness and low weight, since every netbook these days is capable of running any text editor.

The lenovo looks nice, the only thing I didn't like was the TrackPoint thingy and the price lol the msi has vista...gross
The lenovo has a normal trackpad also.

The atom on the other laptops he showed were single cores also. Plus i fyou look at the reviews for the CPU in the lenovo, they said it performs about the same as a 2ghz atom.

The lenovo would most likely get better battery life then the others.

Would a dual core at a lower ghz be better than a single core at a higher ghz for single tasks? I doubt that I could get a laptop that could handle any true form of multitasking within my price range anyway.

It seems like all these laptops would do what I want, but I can't decide which one will have the best portability, longest battery life, and of course...look the prettiest haha

My wife has an Asus 1015, and it's a great little machine. I can type on it comfortably, though it takes about five to ten minutes after coming from a full-size keyboard to get used to it again. If you make a lot of transitions, then it might be annoying for you, but if this will be your primary typing platform then it will be just fine.
