I've been thrown into the world of laptops and my head is spinning. I've been comparing specs with all kinds of computers, and keep coming back to Asus, probably because of the battery life they advertise. I want a 13-14" model, with big battery life, very portable, and as much power as I can get for a moderate price. The big thing is that I DONT game, or watch movies or download alot of stuff off the Internet. I use my computer for emailing, storing photos, and writing essays. that's about it. I travel alot, so I need it to be strong enough to handle my backpack. Everyone seems so concerned with gaming capabilities, but I'm not. So, I'm wondering just what I need to look for in terms of power supply that would be enough for my needs. Right now I'm comparing the specs of the ASUS UL80Vt with those of the K42F, but the K series has a 6 cell battery, but an Intel Core i3 processor. The UL80 only has an Intel Core Duo SU7300 processor, with an 8 cell battery. Which specs should I be more concerned about? And how does the Duo Core T6600/6 cell battery (U80A-RSTML05) factor into the competition here? Should I consider it, or is it yesterday's news? ANY insight would be helpful. Because I live in the UAE, I need to consider global warranties (which ASUS has), and service. Just don't steer me into Mac land- I'm not dishing out that much money...
