Interesting, but the Intel Atom x86-based Asus Eee 901 can already 
provide 8 hours of battery life. I've got one, and it really does.

Whilst I know Canonical are producing an ARM netbook distro of Ubuntu, 
it'll be interesting to see whether the other things that we 
all-too-often rely on, such as Adobe Flash, will be compiled for ARM. 
Trying to sell a netbook to the hip'n'trendy young professional market, 
that doesn't play Youtube, will be a difficult venture.
