Hi Barbara
I'm using the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook which does have the 3 cell battery 
but has solid state  storage rather than hard disk - I suppose not 
havvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvving a hard disk helps the battery conserve more 
energy - I haven't had it long enough to check times but I think it gets at 
least 3 or 4 hours from it.
My requirements for a netbook were that it was small and light with good 
connectivity - the Dell has that. An 8.9 inch screen and smaller keyboard 
brings down the weight and size nicely. The keyboard although smaller is 
perfectly usable touchtyping-wise after a little use. I also liked the Vodafone 
offer of unlimited connectivity built-into the computer itself, no extra 
dongles.  It works well on the 3g network and hdsa (not sure of the initials) 

Hope this helps.

  Further to the Samsung NC10 thread, has anyone tried any other netbooks? Such 
as Acer or Asus?
