The noise at medium/high is pretty loud. If your laptop is meant for school, it'll probably be heard during lecture. Having said this, I really want to stress that I cannot hear the fan at its lowest setting.

I got a request to do stream, aim, facebook, and 10 chrome tabs to test battery life. What's the best way to time it? Is there a program that I can use? Or should I just sit there and time it?

EDIT omg.. I just realized I double posted...

Can I put a request for someone to test out some Linux distros? Like Kubuntu, openSUSE, or Fedora?
I'm interested in this netbook but I really want to hear about what Linux will be like on it.

I wouldn't say it's bad but it could be a little quieter.

Despite how much noise the fan makes the dm1 is very cool. You can't feel any heat from the exhaust vent or from the chassis even without an intake.

Today was actually my first day using it during school and noise wasn't noticeable at all during my lectures. But if you were to use it in a very quiet environment such as a library it can attract some attention because of its sexiness and noise.

I wouldn't suggest basing your battery life on what Win 7 gives you in the taskbar because of inaccurate readings.

I would choose a day prior to an exam or when you're doing homework because you're most likely going to be sitting there for hours using programs like Word and the internet browser for all your work.

May I use this quote in my review? It pretty much sums up the dm1z .

This is a good idea. I wish I got my dm1z BEFORE finals... I got it the day before my last final
