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- Decent processor and RAM (I know this is a netbook, just nothing outdated or slow - would prefer dual core)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. :)

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.
