I don't own that model. But my trick to avoid overheating is simple. I set the power profile to battery mode which slows down the system and CPU and produces a lot less heat. I also make sure it's on a surface that doesn't obstruct airflow.

In regards to batteries. The usual battery hours supplies for ALL laptops is about 2 hours. With a range for a low 1 hour to a high of 4 hours for some unit that just sat there with the display in ultradim mode, that's about it.

YMMV,

Bob

I actually have had the Acer Aspire 2001 running XP Pro for the past month and have had it running for well over a day with no problems. It runs a lot cooler than the Vaio GRX laptop it replaced (a P4-M), it is a lot lighter, and has wireless LAN built in. (a bonus for me)

On battery mode, the Aspire 2001 in my experience has run 4 hours 25 mins, but only took less than 2 hours to recharge.

As far as adding a keyboard, get a usb keyboard, and you will not have a problem. The Acer Aspire comes with 3 USB 2.0 ports.
