Default Battery Life on 10v ? - 06-26-2011, 03:04 PM

Read the new 1018's run about 7.5 hours with a 6 cel battery!

About how long can you run a 10v on a new 3 cel or 6 cel battery?

Flash off, just basic surfing...

Does the 6 tilt the screen too far forward for lap use, reducing contrast?

the 6 cell on a 10v (1011) and a 10 (1010) do stick out the bottom, it doesnt reduce contrast at all and I actually like it because it raises the keyboard at a better angle for typing and also helps to cool the FANLESS Minis better than sitting flat on the surface, the 6 cell for the 1012/1018 is flush with the bottom of the unit, I have the 6 cell in my 1010 and its almost 2yrs old and I still get 6+ hrs out of it....

BTW: I recommend getting a Netbook Chillpad regardless of which model Mini/battery(3hr/6hr) you have
