That or getting an EeePC with an SSD, a 12-cell battery (not sure if it even exists) and a AMD APU, limit the number of active processes and still downclock the chip.

It' more for product reviewers and company's that design the notebooks and tablets to test battery life with a score at the end. I recieved my copy this morning :)
