The Battery is really good lasts a good while I tested it and seemed to last at lease a good 2 and a half hours. Not much for all day working but just enough to help you out when you're on the train.
Really Lovely and thin 3cm little machine however it's quite large in width and weight surprisingly weighing in at 2.6kg. Personally I always find it a little annoying to lump around a big laptop. So it could sure be smaller and lighter that would be a great improvement. However that being said it does have a really nice 15inch TFT screen with great resolution 1,024x768. The Screen is a real plus point as it helps solve the usual issue with laptops that prevents you from viewing from different angles. With this awesome display I could even see the screen view clearly at a wired side on angle.
The Graphics are a bit of a let down really though a bit of a shame considering it has some really nice features and really good design even if a bit on the heavy side. The CPU it's got is lame for any kind of 3d games it's defo not a laptop to try and max out by playing a game it would be massively slow to try an render even a half way decent game. However great for watching movies and streaming tv with it's big clear screen it does that entertainment job very well. The Amilo's wide body is a good asset when it comes to ports it's got lots on the sides without effecting the sylish look of the laptop. Along with standard stuff like usb's it even has an Fire Wire port and a card reader so that you can insert SD cards and the like right in without an adapter.
The keys are big and well laid out which I liked. The hard drive is a little on the small side these days bigger is definitely better.
Over All a nice little feature rich laptop, Just don't expect it to be the most high end piece of tech you've ever laid hands on though.
* Pros: beautiful picture quality, sound is just right I make use of Internet telephone like Skype and other Voip services regularly and this lets you hear the other person crystal clear, Also music and streaming tv works a treat.
* Graphic's Applications run well also I ran Photoshop CS3 and was manipulating photos effortlessly no freezing or crashing.
Cons: The keys should really be improved in size but they did the job as they were.
Using the FN Key on the keyboard allowed some un usual tricks to be unlocked like it enabled me to turn the laptop sound up or down with the arrow keys not really sure how useful a function that was but oh well it's got it.
Summing up: I Recommend this Laptop Highly
Good Power, Speed ease of use although slightly small keys that could be improved but then again it is a net book designed for portability as the paramount function.
This model has 3 gb ram and 320 for hard drive no technical issues what so ever throughout my tests and I have had some bad experiences with faulty laptops before battery life could be a tad longer I suppose but then again all laptops should have longer lasting batteries than they do but other than that great little machine.
