I do not get 10 hours out of the battery but it does help prop up the
netbook a bit, better angle for typing. I have to turn off the touch
pad or typing is impossible. Might be an ubuntu issue. After a year
of heavy use I have no problems. Hit escape to activate the usb port
for installing ubuntu. 2 gigs cost me about 25 euros. I use it with
a 21" external monitor, no problem. No hdmi port on mine. Talking
about the nc 110.
