Thanks, you're right it might not be. I wonder if it sucks a little more power?

I'm checking these particular ones right now,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220504

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220534

From what I gather, the first link is the upgraded one from the second link as new netbooks are being made with the N280, I beleive.\


Edit-do any sub 400 netbooks come with glossy screens? If anyone knows just off hand?

I would have to say the Asus branded ones are best.

The N280 improves significantly on N270's already excellent power consumption, with a rated TDP of 2W, down 20 percent from the N270's 2.5W.

Previous Atom chips -- like the Atom N270 with the 945GSE chipset -- do not include hardware-based HD video decoders.
...
The N280 will power Asus' $399 Eee PC 1000HE netbook, which the PC maker claims offers up to 9.5 hours of battery life.
It seems like the N280 (9.5 hours from Source and Newegg) based lasts 2.5 hours longer than the N270 (7 hours according to Newegg).
Looks it might be worth the $33 difference (Priced from Newegg), with the N280, the netbook lasts longer, and allows you to stream HD. It's totally worth it for those who like to stream HD or go on trips to where they might not be able plug in the netbook to charge. But for those that doesnt watch HD or like to have their netbook charged, then its not worth it.

Knew what netbooks were for a while but only just thought about buying one. What's the final verdict on a best value net books? I'm in the UK by the way.

The Asus n10 and n20 are pretty nice. I know the n10 has a 9300gt which can play most games at 1024x600. My friend plays crysis on medium on it pretty well.
