    Found one on Amazon!


    Looking to buy a netbook to use for tuning my car. I already have a HP laptop which I use for tuning but would like something smaller and not nearly as expensive in case something happened to it. Probably looking for something similar to this:
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Asus-1015PX-MU17-BU/16651397

    Requirements:
    - Decent processor and RAM (I know this is a netbook, just nothing outdated or slow - would prefer dual core)
    - Good to excellent battery life (6 cell if possible)
    - Fairly new (decent hardware and not all scratched/beat up)
    - Prefer a 10" netbook

    If you have one that you think I may be interested in, please send me a PM with details, pictures and a price. Heatware is in my signature. Thanks. :)

    How many hours would you consider good to excellent battery life?

    fadedmemories HP DM1z fits the bill i think

    I have a DM1 with 8Gb ram and they are pretty amazing for a 11.6" netbook. roughly about 7-8hrs just browsing the net on a standard 6 cell battery. If you want 9Hrs then its better to go for an Intel Atom base processor - but kiss goodbye to 1080p videos if you do that.

    Roughly eight hours or so.
