Looking for something to bring to school, just for web surfing and coding between classes. I'd like it to be around 2.5 pounds or less, if possible, but battery life is more important. It doesn't have to be ubuntu compatible. I'm willing to use XP or another Linux distro since it's just on a netbook. Thanks!

Hi idigchess.

Try to find one that uses the Atom 280 processor. Most use the Atom 270, but the 280 seems to designed to maximize battery life.
