Overall life, internet surfing and watching dvd movies that are load on there.

I am thinking of getting my daughter one, instead of getting another portable DVD player for road trips. She also play on the internet a bit.

My Wife's acer one seems to last about 2 hours on the battery. It varies a bit depending on if you have wifi turned on or off. Hers has the 160 hard drive. One with a solid state hard drive will last longer (less moving parts, less heat generated, less energy used to cool it, etc)

Sony and Panasonic offer the best "claimed" battery life which is just like bike weights, generally an outright 50% exageration.

Smaller is also better, especially when paired with an extended life battery pack. I have an HP 2514, 13" display and I get about 4 hours on it, surfing, working with photos. and blogging. I just picked up a Sony X series and I get close to 6 hours on it using the same applications.

I did a lot of research, and the Sony Vaio came out tops.

My 8.9 in Acer with the larger 6-cell battery gives me a good, solid 4 hours of wi-fi use.
