Acer Aspire Timeline 1810TZ

RH Numbers

The 1810TZ was, for a long while, Reg Hardware's choice of 11.6in notebook, offering a level of performance in excess of rival machines thanks to its dual-core Pentium SU4100 CPU and their single-core offerings. But it's long in the tooth now, and soon to be replaced - though it's widely available, especially in its pricey Special Edition form. I'd give it consideration, however, if you're after a long battery life. It managed well over four hours in the Reg Hardware test, which means more than eight hours in the real world - and when I've disabled Wi-Fi and dimmed the screen, I've seen Windows 7 report more than 11 hours' runtime available.

Asus Eee PC 1215N

RH Numbers

Asus' sub-notebook is unique among those gathered here for a number of reasons. It has a 12.1in screen - only slightly larger than the average - and an Atom processor: the 1.8GHz D525. It also incorporates Nvidia's Ion 2 chipset, enabling it to support HDMI output and the customary 1366 x 768 display. It also has a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and Bluetooth 3.0.

RH Recommended Medal

If the features list doesn't impress, its graphics performance will. It's well ahead of anything else here, graphically, though its dual-core CPU won't match AMD or Intel's notebook-class chips. And, in this class of machine, CPU is more important than GPU.
