i have just seen a German review which mentions 2 averatec subnotebooks both having the battery lifetime at 1,5-2 hours (uniwill 223ii0 in the same review has 3,5 hours).
PS: Recently I had all the same difficult choice: apple ibook, PB, dell, averatec (sony, samsung excluded because of their price) and I ended up
with uniwill 223ii0. Maybe it is not the best choice because I haven't tried
new 12" MSI Megabook with Sonoma and Turion.
My main problem with uniwill 223ii0 is it loud fan (MSI Megabook probably has no better). Another problem is its plastic case which does not feel robust (unlike MSI's magnesiun case). I had also a problem with keyboard which I did not like, but the assembler firm (in Germany, NEXOC) has replaced it after my complain and it's OK now.
