Not trying to upsell, but if you want something a little faster with good battery life (they say 9.5 hours), the HP dm1z is a solid choice for $400-425. The E1-1200M and E1-1800M are both a decent amount faster than the C-60 (they're similar to E-350 and E-450 performance). http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Laptops/HP-Pavilion/B1F62AV?HP-Pavilion-dm1z-4200-Entertainment-Notebook-PC&adid=10427473&affpid=4485850&aoid=35252

Nice. Thanks! Definitely seems like something that is better. I actually ended up finding this one after you suggested those.

edit:
Ok now I actually found these 2 after you suggested those netbooks. Not sure which one I should go with now.

My friend told me to look into a ultrabook and he found this one for me.

It looks really nice and says it has really good battery life. I would just have to settle for being a little bit bigger and 1lb heavier.
