The EeePC 901 (300 notes, Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 20GB SSD [Or 12 with 
XP]) is meant to be pretty good for battery life, up to just under 8 
hours i've heard. I've been tempted by one for Uni, except i'd stick 
Xubuntu on it with a custom kernel specifically for the Eee. Only thing 
that bothers me is the price, especially considering the price on that 
Aspire Onen (But i suppose you get the much bigger SSD, more RAM and a 
presumably better battery
