Hi,

my sister requires a netbook to take with to class that is portable, can run office and maybe a video at the same time. Battery life is important in that it has to last about 4-5 hours.
The size requirement is about 11" or so. I am not familiar with cheap budget laptops and ran around the shops today looking at different netbooks.

So these are a list of the devices:
Lenovo Yoga 300 11.6'' Netbook R6699 or http://www.takealot.com/lenovo-yoga-300-11-6-netbook/PLID41204261 R6149 (What's the difference?)
I saw the same one for R7999 at incredible connection with a pentium, which we would like to get. (4GB RAM)

The same specs except RAM, at incredible with the pentium version at the same price: HP Pavilion 360 @ R7999 (2GB RAM)


I would appreciate any advice on the matter.

I bought http://store.orange.com/za/computin...5-2gb-32gb-ssd-win-81-qwerty-uk-white-280815/ as a secondary laptop at R3500. Picked this one mainly because of its battery life, 10 hours +. Very happy with it so far. Some of the 11" Chromebooks in Incredible Connection also look pretty good.

Collected at their Newlands Orange Store, took about 2 days to arrive as they had stock in JHB.

I'm a bit worried about the weakness of the processor on the Atom, I think I'll go with the Pentium processor at incredible, though it pains me to support them.
