good battery life 4+ hours
looking to go small for travel 14 or less prefer widescreen
Screen that can be seen outside in daylight is very important
Can anyone give me more info on ASus screens, are there 2 types? which one would be better for direct sunlight? Will the W3J be customizable with the screen?
Where to buy ASUS??
Since the W3J will not be out for AT LEAST a month [not in production], and you did not mention gaming above, I would go for the same resolution sister notebook, W5F.
It's a 12" ultra light model with a 1280x800 res and many other cool extras.
The single core model is currently $100 off [by ASUS] too, so up to you.
I use this model and it's great for carrying around and traveling.
Works fine outside too... I found that sometimes if it's very bright outside, I can turn off the backlight and use the sunlight and see the lcd still.
Just a thought.
