View Full Version : Lifespan on eepc
11-19-2008, 02:33 AM
I'm looking for a new computer for a friend, just a basic thing. She really likes the idea of the eeepc, though the selling deal is how long the computer will last? I assume your pretty safe for the warranty. I heard ssd hard drives can last up to 15 years and the batteries are sound. So if anyone knows about the specs on the eeepc could you help me?

Couldn't tell you about the lifespan of the eepc. But I can tell you that if you or your friend are going to use it a lot "on-the-go". Or consecutive classes at uni or the like, I could recommend the Samsung NC10 To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 2 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
It has the 6 cell battery, which should last up to 6 hours. I have its little big brother, the q45 and it has amazing battery life as well. It is a bit bigger, but has a dual core in comparison to the NC10s Atom chip. The eepc and the NC10 are similar in performace, except for what its worth, you will get a more sleek looking, longer-lasting laptop and a better keyboard with it. You should check them out at the store, as did I. They should be pretty fast if you run linux on them. If you want to go with vista, one might have to think twice about an eepc for instance.
