Battery Life?

here’s the product website from gateway

going by the specs and price alone, it looks like a good buy

Not Bad. How long will the battery last with it full on, I wonder?

They were selling this at best buy for a while for 100 bucks more. Looks like a sweet netbook to me. Wish I could afford it.

No disc drive?

Does this have one of those extra large batteries that gives the back of the netbook an extra “lift”?

if I play Hulu videos will this have high def quality?

Netbooks dont have those. Bites, I know but that helps in battery life and compactness.

I had an Acer notebook with only a 1GB hard drive. It couldn’t update itself without running out of memory. Pathetic.

That being said, this is the computer I looked at afterward. I’ll be debating this one for a few hours…

If it wasn’t a single core AMD…

I bought one of these a few months back. Happy with it overall, but the wifi had some troubles. Here’s how I got it working in windows. No luck with wireless in Ubuntu 9.10 either, but everything else works fine.

Battery gets almost 4 hours with the screen turned down. Keyboard is full size, and is very easy to type on. Much better than the 10" netbooks I tried.

Runs Windows 7 like a champ, the 2 GB of ram is great.


Haven’t had any luck with it yet.

Run away, run away. this is not the adam processor.


Head-to-head comparison with the comparable Acer Netbook:

Is there a manual on/off switch for the built-in webcam?

its a six cell, expect between 4-6 hours of battery life… good buy

and yes the battery will give the little lift, sticks out a bit
