I would get one with an atom 330 dualcore and 9400M chipset.
Are there any interferences by Intel to sell atom with the ION platform??

Seriously long bat life is suppose to be a backbone of netbooks.

Yeah, and throw in a 15 inch screen and a 7200 RPM hard drive...Oh wait, its not a netbook anymore.

The specs look pretty similar to the Gateway LT3103u I just picked up, though I got a 6-cell battery that lasts me a good 5 hours (whole notebook cost me $20 less too). Since that celeron is based on the core architecture it should make for a very capable notebook/netbook though a 6 cell is pretty much a must.

Yeah. Faster processor, more RAM, and better battery life. Wait, now we have a notebook. Seriously. A solution in search of a problem.

Yeah, but makes it a 17" WUXGA screen instead.
Screw 10"+ netbooks. If I'm going to get something the size of a notebook, I want notebook specs...

The Notebook Graphic Dilema:
NVidia VGA for CUDA and faster and time bomb (aka defect chip)
or
ATI for slow but no CUDA (It has stream but beside Cyberlink, there is no company that currently able to use it).

But, it's a Dell. Dell = under powered, over priced. I also can't believe my eyes when people post raves about a Celeron. I guess after 23 years of computers, one developes some bias.

Not impressed Dell, No Ubuntu option to save me $50+ bucks either. Why should I pay for a Microbloat license if I don't want it on my netbook?

You're complaining about the resolution? The screen is 11 inches. If the resolution was any lower, you wouldn't be able to read anything on it.

I thought this was supposed to be a low-cost notebook, not a netbook?

Hell, it's hard to tell anymore, the lines are being quite blurred as of late.

I would think most "netbooks" run with an Atom, which does help to provide superior battery life, which might explain why this net/notebook with it's celery processor only sustains about 3 hours.

All guesses on my part though, if I was going for a small PC like this, I'd just go with Asus I think.
