Please tell me how you get on with the 13hr battery life. The laptop
we have at home goes by 8hrs but only if the ASUS resource saving mode
is on. I seem to recall that things like video watching where affected
in this mode.

You can all relax, I am now dual booting Ubuntu 11.04 on my Eee PC
1015PEM, with Ubuntu as the default.

I cannot see myself booting into W7 very often - don't really know why I
kept it.
