System Noise Basically, the hardware component development considerably lower TDP would also lead to a lower system noise, as there is a lot less potential waste heat. If there now were suspicious case surface temperatures noticed, something would likely be badly wrong with the prototype.

The Eee is always a few seconds faster in each runthrough, which however can’t really be determined subjectively in the performance of both netbooks.

The display could make an overall positive impression in the technical measurements. Merely the netbook without any special supplies can be ordered in Germany. The other extreme, that is to say the minimum possible battery life under load max.
