After having my old laptop for four years, it's battery stopped functioning properly and the charge lasts for a few minutes now. I looked up a few replacement batteries online and found them to be pretty expensive. As I visited the store today, some tiny net books caught my eye. I found out that the battery of a net book lasts for up to 10 hours, which is pretty amazing.
I mainly use my computer for school, and such battery life seems to be just perfect for me.
I was wondering if someone else runs Ubuntu in a netbook, and if the performance is acceptable for basic things such as taking notes with a note taking app and browsing the Internet.
I would be either erasing windows or dual booting.
I'd like to hear from a Linux netbook owner before I purchase one.
