View Full Version : Long-life notebook suggestions

20-09-2010, 12:50 PM
Can someone recommend me a long life (around 8 hours using Wi-Fi) notebook. . . .something with a ~12" screen, and probably Windows 7 (better on the battery than XP?).

I've looked at the Asus U-series, so was thinking CULV-based?

Essentially, this device will be used as a wireless stocktaking tool, with a USB barcode scanner, connecting via telnet to a linux server, so it needs next-to-no CPU power.

Didn't Dell once have something that they claimed had 10-12 hours?

Claims 19 hour battery life.
