Hp Dv1040us?Okay, I'm going nuts. Here I'm trying to keep it lightweight, etc., and saw another notebook - the HP dv1040US. It's 5.3 lbs, but I do like the keyboard - easier to use than some of the others. Can I please get your comments on HP as far as quality, battery life, etc? I think that would be the heaviest I would go; ideally under 4 lbs.
I need to look at all the specs on the battery life of these notebooks. I do want one with a good battery life. I think 2 hours is way too short. I'll also have to check on pricing for a second battery.
"Asus M5n 12", downside standard battery about 1-2 hrs battery life. Upside, with extended battery, which protrudes from the back about 5hrs plus." Is the protruding a bad thing? Or is it just in the way?
There is a local ASUS dealer in the area, so that's one big plus for me. I've been trying to find another one in the area so I could get them to compete (if possible) against each other and maybe I could get a better price on the M5N if I end up choosing that one.
Thank goodness I'm not in a rush to buy a notebook!
