    Not worth it imo. Not when you can get a i3 for about £50 more, Saveonlaptops had an offer for an i3 + some okish graphics card 14.1" Dell about a week ago.

    You guys need guns man.

    On a side note I wish I was over there. It would be cool to have a pint with some of you and talk shit as we watch the 16,000 cops beat the hell out of those pricks. We could even make a drinkin game out of it. Every time a protester gets kicked in the ass we take a shot.

    If we have guns the country would have been thrown into civil war by now. No thanks.

    I don't think that laptop can do 9-10 either. No word on the specs, and from what I have seen bobcats cant really do more than 6-7hrs on standard batteries.

    there are hundreds of reviews out there for the netbook i linked too.

    In fact ive already worked my fiances out and i dont need to sell off my laptop to get one.

    well its down to how you use them also i suppose. Im not planning to get one for intensive work. but i need something more portable with a much longer battery life then my laptop. and the Toshiba NB550D pretty much does all i need, with more empasis on graphics. There is the NB520 model which is kitted out with the intel Atom N570 & shitty 3150graphics. Battery is longer. but then again. that wont play game as well as the C-50 and it will struggle playing anything beyond 720p.

    So i have a choice. more productivity with an intel atom or more media functionality and i have chosen media because the brazos comes with a HD6250

    There are quite a lot of reviews out there that put the NB550D through PCmark battery life test and some burn out in 6-7hrs, others do a full 8-10hrs.

    good Media performance and battery life are what im looking for.

    All i need to do is put 4Gb in there. install Windows 7 ultimate via USB stick and put in an SSD at a later date.

    Parts I don't really like is screen, lack of USB 3.0 and ram (which can be upgraded, so no matter). Still, if you think its a good deal than get it. I don't usually need more than a few hours battery but I am not you.

    all i need to do is source one that has an 8Cell battery.

    reviews and model numbers are a little confusing as neither of them are clear about the battery

    I find that a waste though. lots of CPU muscle and they lumber it with shitty Intel graphics.

    that baton thing has just been delisted. its all just baseball bats now


    and baseball bats aint my thing. takes too much energy to swing, and it leaves you open when you swing it.

    Its gotta be something thats duel wieldable for me. batons like those would have been perfect

    I would prefer if the bought in the use of rubber/plastic bullets. that would be more effective.

    thats something thats going to be debated tonight at the COBRA meeting.
