Hi, I am new to this forum. I have an elderly Asus 1005HA. I have filled all it's memory and it is getting lots of glitches. I need to replace it and had thought I would just buy a more upto date netbook but I get the impression that may not be my best option.
I need a long battery life as I work on sites where there is no electric available and need the computer on all day.
I need to run Windows and Microsoft Office as my work needs to be compatible with University computers and I am secretary of a Morris dance group (yes, I know) and so things I send out need to be easily accessible to the members of the group.
I also need to run the RYA Sailwave programme which my friend's Apple computers won't open.
I need a keyboard as typing on a screen just isn't on for long documents or inputing figures.
The machine also needs to be as light as possible as I cart the thing round in my shoulder bag most of the time.
The most I have available is £450.
Sorry for the long list of needs and I know it's a tall order but can anyone advise me where I should be looking other than another Asus. I am wondering about the 1015PX but I am worried about it using Windows starter7 (old?) And |I don't like that Windows 7 won't run Outlook Express.
